PREFACE 



This Catalogue of the Third, South, or Old South 
Church, has been prepared in compliance with a vote of 
the church, and for the use, primarily, of those who now con- 
stitute the membership. It has been compiled from what 
stand as the original lists ; but there is reason to believe 
that the record of admissions during the first few years, 
perhaps during the first pastorate, is a transcript from a 
still earlier record not now in existence, by whom made, 
or when, we are unable to say. These lists have been 
closely followed in the first part of the work, in the order 
of time, in the spelling of the names, and in the new 
names of female members acquired by marriage. In the 
second part, which consists of alphabetical lists, the modern 
method of spelling has been generally adopted. In both 
these parts, lists are given of those who "owned the 
covenant," as well as of those who joined in full com- 
munion. 

In the third part, an attempt has been made to give 
some information, in the form of biographical notes, of 
the earlier members of the church ; the direct references 
we have felt obliged to limit to those who joined during 



VI PREFACE. 

the first fifty years, but incidental mention is made of many 
of the descendants of the founders and first members, who 
came into the church after 17 19, and special pains have 
been taken to illustrate the relations sustained by families 
and by successive generations of families to the church. 
In the preparation of these notes, free use has been made 
of Dr. Wisner's Historical Discourses, of Savage's Genea- 
logical Dictionary of New England, of Drake's History of 
Boston, of Shurtleff's Topographical Description of Bos- 
ton, of Sibley's Graduates of Harvard University, of 
Holland's Genealogy of the Dawes Family, and of the 
Memorial History of Boston, edited by Mr. Justin Winsor 
of Cambridge. But the chief source from which the in- 
formation here presented has been drawn, is the Diary of 
Samuel Sewall, published by the Massachusetts Historical 
Society, and edited by a learned committee of its mem- 
bers. Samuel Sewall, who has been called the Samuel 
Pepys of New England, but whom we would rather com- 
pare with John Evelyn, thought no incident which con- 
cerned the Third or South Church in Boston, to which 
he belonged, or any of its members however humble or 
obscure, too trivial to be entered in his journals. We are 
indebted to him for an insight into the character and aims 
of the men and women who preceded us in the fellowship 
of this church two hundred years ago, and for an ac- 
quaintance with the details of their religious life and 
experiences, such as are enjoyed by few historic churches, 
and which enable us to endow with personality, and almost 
with life, much of what otherwise would have been a dull 
and dry list of names. 



PREFACE. Vii 

Judge Sewall has much to say about a neighborhood 
prayer meeting to which he gave his warm personal 
sympathy, and which he attended with as much regularity 
as was possible, during the entire period of his Christian life. 
It was established by his father-in-law, John Hull, and 
other members of the South Church ; and it seems to 
have been for a time the only regular week-day service 
in the town except the Thursday Lecture. Frequent 
reference to this meeting will be found in the later pages 
of this volume ; the following account of it, during the 
first year of its existence, will serve to introduce it to the 
reader, and to bring into prominent notice several of the 
members who participated in its privileges. 

1676. "Dec. 13. This day at even went to a private 
meeting at M r Nath. Williams's. Emaus Smith spake well

The Script, spoken to was Hoseah 6. 3. Then shall we have 
knowledge and endeavour ourselves to know the Lord (as in 
the Translation I have by me). Capt. Henchman handled 
it." 

" Wednesday, Jan. 24. Went to the n ,b Meeting at M' 
Hay wards, in the Chamber over M r Brattles Room, where 
G[oodman] James Hill and Joseph Davis spake to Job 22. 21. 
Acquaint thyself with him, etc. Note, M r Brattle and his 
Son-in-Law M r [Nathaniel] Oliver were there." 

" Feb. 7. Went to the 1 2 th meeting at M r Morse his House,

words I seriously considered that no godly man hath any more 
afflictions than what he hath need of." 

"Feb. 21. Went to the 13 th [sic] Meeting at Cousin 
Savage's, where my Father in Law and Goodman Needham 
spake to Psal. 6. 1." 

" March 7. A pretty deal of Thunder this day. Went to

and M r Alden spake to 1 Sam. 15. 22. To obey better than

" April 4 ,h was at the 15 th Meeting, kept at our house in 
the little Hall, because of my wives weakness. Mr. Scottow 
spoke to Is. 27. 9. prin." 

"April 11, Stormy, blustering fore part, left raining a little

did me some good at that meeting as to my Love to Christ." 
"May 16, went to the 17 th Meeting at B[rother] Hills, 
where B[rother] Tapin and Cousin Savage spake to Heb. 10. 
24. May 30, went to the i8 ,h Meeting at M r Wings, where 
M r Thacher spake to the 4 last verses of 92 Psal. June 4. 
Went to Plimouth. June 6. Returned. June 13. Went 
to the 19 th meeting atB[rother] Williams, where G[oodman~| 
Needham and my Father spake to Ps. 119. 11." 

It is hoped that the personal history of the membership 
may be brought down to the close of the eighteenth cen- 
tury, at no distant day ; but it is very doubtful whether 
materials exist for as full a record for the years immediately 
succeeding the death of Judge Sewall, as during the time 
covered by his diary. During the revolutionary period, 
the character of the members and their relation to pub- 
lic affairs will find ample illustration in the lives of 
Oxenbridge Thacher, James Otis, Thomas Cushing, John 
Scollay, Thomas and William Dawes, Robert Treat Paine, 
and Samuel Adams. 

By the courtesy of Messrs. James R. Osgood & Co. we 
are enabled to reproduce in this volume, from the Memorial 
History of Boston, the autograph signatures of most of 
the founders of the church. The heliotype of the Rev. 
Thomas Thacher's "essay for accommodation" between 
the First and Third churches in 1670, and of the signa- 
tures of the women who were obliged to appeal to an 
Ecclesiastical Council in 1674, before they could transfer 
their membership regularly to the Third Church, are copied 
from the original documents on file among the archives 
of the latter church. 



X PREFACE. 

In the preparation of the biographical notes, valuable 
assistance has been rendered by Mr. John Ward Dean, of 
the New-England Historic Genealogical Society, and by 
Mr. Thomas Minns, of the First Church, Boston. Acknow- 
ledgment is hereby made also of the interest manifested 
in the work, and of the aid rendered in its preparation, by 
the Hon. Peter Thacher, Mr. Henry Ware Holland, Mr. 
Henshaw Bates Walley, Mr. Walter Lloyd Jeffries and 
Mr. Harrison Ellery, who are among the representatives, 
in the present generation, of families whose names will 
always be remembered at the Old South with affectionate 
regard.

"One family, we dwell in him, 

One church, above, beneath, 
Though now divided by the stream, 

The narrow stream of death. 
One army of the living God, 

To his command we BOW; 
Part of his host hath crossed the flood, 

And part is crossing now."

LIST OF DEACONS. 1 



" For they that have served well as deacons gain to themselves a good standing, 
and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus." 



Edward Raynsford (Ruling Elder). Died Aug. 16, 1680. 

Peter Bracket, Deacon. Died July — , 1688. 

Jacob Eliot, Deacon. Died Aug. 17, 1693. 

Theophilus Frarye, ordained Deacon, Nov. 8, 1685. 
Died Oct. 17, 1700. 

Nathaniel Williams, elected Deacon, Oct. 15, 1693. 
Died Dec. 23, 1714. 

James Hill, elected Deacon, Nov. 24, 1693. 
Died Feb. 26, 1720-21. 

Samuel Checkley, Deacon. Died Dec. 27, 1738. 

Bartholomew Green, elected Deacon, April 17, 1719. 
Died Dec. 28, 1732. 

Daniel Henchman, elected Deacon, April 17, 1719. 
Died Feb. 25, 1761. 

Jonathan Simpson, elected Deacon, Aug. 7, 1733. 
Died Feb. 18, 1763. 

Thomas Hubbard, elected Deacon, April 9, 1739. 
Resigned Jan. 23, 1764; died July 14, 1773. 

Samuel Sewall, elected Deacon, Sept. 16, 1763. 
Died Jan. 19, 1771. 

1 The name of but one Ruling Elder is mentioned in the Records of the Old 
South Church ; but this docs not prove that there were not others, as the Records 
were very imperfectly kept at first. The choice of Deacons was not always recorded ; 
no mention is made of any election until November, 1685. The names of Samuel 
Checkley and Bartholomew Green do not appear in the list compiled by the Rev. 
Dr. Wisner. We find the date of Mr. Green's election in Judge Sewall's Diary. 
There is a tradition that Samuel Adams, Senior, was a Deacon, but the evidence 
at hand is not sufficient to justify the insertion of his name in this list.

Remark. 1 — Owing to the possession of the Town by the 
British Troops in 1775 and 1776, to the demolition of the in- 
ternal part of the house of Worship, with the Death of one 
of the Ministers, and Dismission of the other, the members 
of the Old South Church were dispersed, and did not assemble 
again in a Church State, by themselves, until November, 1777.

1 Deborah was a colored servant, who probably lived with the Sewall family, 
and, therefore, took its name. Quickly Oliver (1797) is another case of the same 
kind. In the earlier years, such servants, whether free or otherwise, generally had 
but one name, as will be seen on the previous pages of this catalogue, — Lydia, 
Scipio, etc.

" Ye are the sons of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with 

your fathers." 



The Names of such as have owned y e Covenant & sub- 
mitted to y e watch of y e Church since May 16, 1669.

1 The words "joined in full communion" are placed against many of these 
names on the register ; but as others seem to have thus joined besides those which 
are designated in this way, it has been thought best to omit the reference altogether. 
A comparison of the two alphabetical lists in the second part of this work will 
help to show who and how many of the regular members of the Church entered 
it by the porch or vestibule of the baptismal covenant. During the first ten years, 
about one third of those whose names appear upon this list subsequently joined in 
full communion, many of them being the baptized children of the founders and 
early members, — the Scottows, the Rainsfords, the Davises, the Fraryes, the Brattles, 
and the Olivers. Later, many of the servants as well as the children were admit- 
ted to the privileges of this qualified membership.

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 

1669—1719- 



" The sweet remembrance of the just 
Shall flourish when he sleeps in dust" 



1669. 

William Davis, apothecary; artillery company, 1643; 
freeman, 1645 ; joint commissioner, 1653, with Leverett, to 
the Dutch Governor of New York ; captain of artill. co. 
1664, 1672; commander of a company in the Indian 
wars ; representative. " A man of wealth, enterprise and 
discretion." His first wife was Margaret, daughter of 
William Pynchon, of Springfield ; his second, Huldah, 
daughter of the Rev. Zechariah wSymmes of Charlestown. 
He had, according to Savage, a third wife, Judith. He 
died in May, 1676. Huldah Davis's signature appears on 
the letter addressed to the First Church in 1669, by the 
wives of the seceding members ; but the name of Joanna 
Davis is on the letter of 27 Aug. 1674, which appealed to 
a council. 



2l6 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

Hezekiah Usher, bookseller ; freeman ; member of 
the artill. co. ; representative. " He was agent for the 
Society for Propagating the Gospel among the Indians ; 
and it was through "him that types and paper were pro- 
cured, by which Green, at Cambridge, printed the great 
Indian Bible in 1660-1663." He went to London for this 
purpose in the winter of 1657-58. His second wife was one 
of the numerous daughters of the Rev. Zechariah Symmes. 
His third wife Mary (1674) was a daughter of William 
Alford, and afterward married the Rev. Samuel Nowell. 
Hezekiah Usher, Jr., merchant, married Bridget, widow 
of the Rev. Leonard Hoar (1672)' and daughter of Lady 
Alice Lisle, one of the victims of the infamous Judge 
Jeffreys, after the battle of Sedgmoor. 

May 14, 1676; "Mr. Hezekiah Usher died, a pious and 
useful merchant." — Hull. 

Nov. 13, 1685 5 "Barington arrives, brings word of the be- 
heading m}' Lady Lisle, Mrs. Hez. Usher's Mother, at Win- 
chester." — Sewall. 

"M r Hezekiah Usher died at Lin ; July n ,h was brought to 
Boston, and laid in his father's Tomb, July 14, 1697. 
Bearers W. Winthrop, Cook, Sewall, Addington, Sergeant, 
Eli. Hutchinson." — Sewall. 



John Hull, silversmith and mint-master ; freeman ; 
capt. of artill. co. 1671, 1678 ; assistant, 1680 to 1685. His 
wife, Judith (1674), was a daughter of Edmund Quincy. 
Huh gave her name to a headland in the Narragansett 
country (where he owned land), which it still bears. 
Their only child, Hannah (1688), married Samuel Sewall 
(1677) in 1675. For an imaginary account of this wed- 
ding, see Hawthorne's Grandfather s Chair, p. 39. Mr. 
Hull died in 1683, and was buried in the Granary burying 
ground. 

1 The year thus given in parenthesis, immediately after a name, is that in which 
the person mentioned became a member of the Old South Church. 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 217 

" A large property- — 350 acres — which he possessed in 
Longwood, was known as Sewall's farm, after it descended 
to his son-in-law." 



Edward Ratnsford, came in the fleet with Winthrop ; 
said by Hutchinson to have been a brother of Lord Chief 
Justice Rainsford ; this is doubted by Savage, but John 
Hull, writing from England, March, 1676, says: "Judge 
Rainsford, brother to him of Boston, is said to be one of 
their [the Nonconformists'] bitterest enemies. Might not 
his brother have power over him to move him to some 
moderation ? " He had been a deacon of the First Church, 
but was dismissed from office because of his participation 
in the movement for a new church. 

"On 12 Feb. 1669, Edward Rainsford and Jacob Eliot 
were dismissed from the office of deacons for setting their 
hands, with other brethren, to desire their dismission from the 
church, because the church had chosen Mr. Davenport for 
their pastor." — History of the First Church. 

He was chosen ruling elder in the South Church, and 
this is sufficient evidence as to the high respect in which 
he was held among his brethren. So far as we know, he 
is the only one who has held the office in this church. 

His second wife, Elizabeth (1674), and his daughter, 
Ranis Belcher (1674), were among the earliest members 
of the South Church. He died 16 Aug. 1680 (aged 71), 
being, as Hull says, "old and full of days." 

"An Island in the harbor still preserves in its name the 
record of his former ownership." 

Peter Bracrett, Braintree, freeman, 1643 ; artill. co. 
1648 ; representative, 1649, " and often after for his own 
town, and for Scarborough in 1673 and 4 ; " deacon of the 
South Church. His last wife was Mary (1674), widow of 
the first Nathaniel Williams, who had bought from Richard 
Pepys in 1655, the land reserved by William Blackstone 
29 



21 8 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

when he sold his rights to the town in 1634. Pepys, when 
he purchased this land, built a house upon it, and it was 
said that Blackstone frequently went there on his visits 
from Rhode Island. Judge Sewall, writing to the Rev. 
Increase Mather, 24 July, 1688, says : "Deacon Brackett 
was buried this day." 



Jacob Eliot, son of the first Jacob, who was brother 
of the Rev. John Eliot, " the Apostle to the Indians." 
Freeman, 1654. "Captain, in high esteem, selectman, 
deacon." — Savage. He was a deacon of the First Church, 
and afterward of the South Church. He married Mary 
(Powell) (1674), widow of William Wilcock or Wilcox. 

Aug. 12, 1693; " Capt. [and Deacon] Eliot comes sick 
from Muddy-River." Aug. 16; "Dyes about 2. at night." 
Aug. 17; " Is buried. Major Hutchinson, Sewall, Joyliff, 
Walley, P. Allen, Bridgham, Bearers. Buried in the new 
burying place. Tis a sudden and very sore Blow to the 
South Church, a Loss hardly repaired. On the Sabbath, Mr. 
Willard being in before me, I did not mind D[eacon] Eliot's 
absence, and wondered I heard not his voice beginning the 
Ps., and Capt. Frary waited when I should begin it. We 
shall hardly get another such a sweet Singer as we have lost. 
He was one of the most Serviceable Men in Boston, conde- 
scending to his friends. One of the best and most respectfull 
Friends I had in the World. Lord awaken us. Scarce a 
Man was so universally known as He. Dyed in the 61. year 
of s' age. Was one of the first that was born in Boston." 
— Sewall. 

Eliot Street was afterwards opened through his proper- 
ty, which also included the land on which Boylston Market 
stands. 



Peter Oliver, son of Thomas Oliver, who came to New 
England in 163 1, and was ordained ruling elder of the 
First Church, 22 Nov. 1632 ; the Rev. John Wilson being 
ordained as pastor of the church on the same day. 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 219 

" Goodman Thomas Oliver, one of the elders of the First 
Church, a person held in such esteem by his fellow-townsmen 
that in the year 1646, when horses were forbidden to feed upon 
the common, exception was made in favor of one horse for 
him." — Shurtleff. 

Peter was an eminent merchant ; freeman ; capt. of 
artill. co. 1669 ; died 1670. His wife Sarah (1674), daugh- 
ter of John Newdigate, died in 1692. Their descendants 
for several generations were active members of the South 
Church. 



Thomas Brattle, merchant ; freeman ; artill. co. 1672 ; 
was a capt. ; representative. He was one of the wealthiest 
men of his day. His wife was Elizabeth (1672), daughter of 
Captain William Tyng. He died in 1683. Several of his 
immediate family became members of the South Church ; 
and he has had descendants, though not of his own name, 
in the membership almost constantly to the present time. 

Edward Rawson, of Gillingham, Dorset, came to New 
England, 1637, and settled in Newbury, where he was 
town clerk and representative ; removed to Boston, 1650, 
and was Secretary of the Colony from 1650 to 1686. For 
an account of his resistance to Edward Randolph, in de- 
fence of the liberties of New England, see Palfrey's His- 
tory of New England, Vol. III. p. 486. He lived in 
Rawson's Lane, now Bromfield Street, where "he owned 
some acres of land which bordered on the Common or 
Training Field, out of which he sold a number of house 
lots." He died 27 Aug. 1693. 

Joshua Scottow, freeman ; artill. co. 1645, its ensign 
1657 and capt. later ; selectman; a great proprietor after 
Philip's war, at Scarborough, captain of the garrison there 
and magistrate. 



220 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

" Mr. Scottow was a merchant of much respectability, 
nearly contemporary with the Governor [Bradstreet], and, 
during his early life, took an active interest in all the affairs 
of the town. But he grew despondent as he grew in years ; 
the change of dress, manners, and social customs from those 
of the first generation, seemed to him the sure presage of de- 
struction, and he poured out his sorrow in a book of lamen- 
tations called Old A/ens' Tears for their own Declensions." 

This was in 1691. Three years later, he published A 
Narrative of the Planting of the Massachusetts Colony, 
which he dedicated to Governor Bradstreet (1680). Sewall 
records, 21 Jan. 1697-8 : 

" It seems Capt Scottow died the last night. Thus 
the New England Men drop away." Jan. 22 : " Capt Joshua 
Scottow is buried in the old burying place ; Bearers, Maj r 
Gen 1 Winthrop, Mr. Cook, Col. Hutchinson, Sewall, Ser- 
geant, Walley : Extream Cold. No Minister at Capt. 
Scottow's Funeral ; nor wife nor daughter." 

Mr. Scottow's four daughters, and his son, joined the 
church in 1669, under the baptismal, or halfway, cove- 
nant, and the former were afterward received to full mem- 
bership. The son, Thomas, Harv. Coll. 1677, was of 
Scarborough in 1681 ; register of probate, 1687 to 1693 ; 
and died before 171 5. 

Benjamin Gibbs, freeman ; artill. co. 1666; captain in 
Philip's war. His wife was Lydia (1671), daughter of 
Joshua Scottow (1669) ; after his death she became the 
wife of Anthony Checkley (attorney general), and, later, 
of William Colman. 

Thomas Savage, second son of Major Thomas Savage, 
who came to New England in 1635, an( l was commander 
in chief of the forces in the early part of Philip's war. 
His mother was Faith, daughter of William Hutchinson, 
Governor of Rhode Island, and of Anne, his wife, whose 
religious opinions afterward created so much dissension 
in the colony. Thomas Jr. was born 28 May, 1640 ; select- 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 221 

man ; an officer in the expedition to Canada under Sir 
William Phips in 1691. He was capt. of artill. co. the 
year of his death. 

July 2, 1705 ; " L* Col. Tho" Savage dies about 6 p. m." 

July 5 ; " Col. Savage buried about J. p. m. Companies 
in Arms : Bearers, Sewall, Foster; Walley, L l Co 1 Lynde ; 
Townsend, Belchar. The Street very much fill'd with 
People all along." — Sewall. 

His wife was Elizabeth (1670), daughter of Joshua 
Scottow (1669). His father's second wife was Mary, 
daughter of the Rev. Zechariah Symmes. 

Joseph Rock, freeman, 1652. He married Elizabeth 
(1674), daughter of John Coggan, who, says Savage, brought 
him a good estate. His daughter, Hannah (1674), married 
James Brading, and Elizabeth Bromfield (1700) was their 
granddaughter. Mrs. Mary Rock, of whom Judge Sewall 
frequently speaks in his Diary, was, probably, Joseph's 
second wife. She was a daughter of the Rev. John 
Wilson, of Boston ; and her first husband was the Rev. 
Samuel Danforth, of Roxbury (Harv. Coll. 1643), the 
colleague of Eliot, who said in reference to his death, 
" my brother Danforth made the most glorious end that 
ever I saw." — Sibley. Mrs. Rock was probably a member 
of the Second Church, as when she died, 13 Sept. 171 3, 
Dr. Cotton Mather preached her funeral sermon. The 
text was, " His soul shall dwell at ease." The sermon was 
printed, and is in the Prince Library. 

Theodore Atkinson, felt maker. Came from Bury, 
England, with John Newgate or Newdigate. Freeman, 
1642. Died, 1 70 1, aged 89. Sewall records that he at- 
tended his funeral, 16 Aug. 1701. By his first wife, 
Abigail, he had a son Nathaniel, born 1645, Harv. Coll. 
1667; died before 1700. His second wife was Mary 
(1673), daughter of the Rev. John Wheelwright, and 
widow of Edward Lyde. 



222 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

John Wing, son of Robert, who came in the " Francis/' 
1634; artill. co. 1671, of which he was captain 1693. 
His wife was Joshabeth or Jehosheba (1670), daughter of 
James Davis of Boston. 

"He was a very thrifty man, so early as 1674 making bond 
to Samuel Shrimpton for £4,200 secured by Castle Tavern 
near the midst of the town, and other estate of which part was 
near the Common, and this mortgage was discharged in three 
years and he died 22 Feb. 1703." — Savage. 

Cord Wing, son of John, had children by wife Sarah 
(17 1 8), baptized at the South Church early in the next 
century. 

Richard Trewsdale ; called on joining the First 
Church, 27 July, 1634, "servant to our teacher, John 
Cotton." He was afterward a butcher. Freeman, 1635. 
Deacon of the First Church. He died, 167 1, leaving a 
wife, Mary. 

Theophilus Frary, capt. of artill. co. 1682 ; repre- 
sentative. Ordained deacon of the South Church 8 Nov. 
1685. 

" He married Hannah, daughter of the first Jacob Eliot, 
and his wife inherited a part of the Eliot lands at the South 
End. Eliot's house stood at the south west corner of our 
Washington and Boylston streets, and this part of the estate 
passed to the Frarys." 

His second wife was Mrs. Mary Greenwood ; Sewall 
records that he married them, 12 June, 1690. He was 
very active in the church, and was prominent in the oppo- 
sition to Andros and Randolph, when they undertook to 
introduce the forms of the English Church into the colony. 

"Another illustration of the bitter feeling here is found in 
the account of the funeral of a person named Lilly, who had 
left the ordering of this to his executors. Mr. Ratclifie un- 
dertook to read the service at his grave, he having been one 
of the subscribers to the church, but the executors forbade

him ; and when he began, Deacon Frairey of the South 
Church interrupted him, and put a stop to the service, for 
which the deacon was bound to his good behavior for twelve 
months." — Foote. 

Sept. 17, 1697; "I view Mr. Baxters House and the 
Orchard Capt Frary hath given to the Ministry, which lies 
very convenient ; A living Brook runing by it ; and throw 
Mr. Baxters." — Se-wall. 

Oct. 17, 1700; "Capt. Theophilus Frary expires about 3 
aclock past midnight." — Seivall. 

Three of his daughters became members of the South 
Church. 

Robert Walker, freeman, 1634. Judge Sewall records 
his death and funeral : 

May 29, 16S7 ; "Sabbath. Dame Walker desires me to 
pray with her Husband, which I do and write two notes, one 
for our House and one for the Old. Sam. carries the first. 
Between 12. and one Robert Walker dies, about a quarter after 
Twelve. He was a very good Alan, and conversant among 
God's New-England People from the begining. May 31 
Tuesday, Goodm. Walker is buried, Capt. Eliot, Frary, Hill, 
Deacon Allen, Mr. Blake, Pain, Bearers ; Mr. Saunderson 
and Goodm. Serch lead the Widow, Gov r Bradstreet, Mr. 
Cook, Mr. Addington, with the chief Guests, were at our 
house." 

His wife, Sarah (1674), died 21 Dec. 1695. Their son 
was the Rev. Zechariah Walker of Stratford, Conn. He 
left Harvard College before graduation. 

John Alden, eldest son of John Alden the Pilgrim of 
Plymouth and Duxbury, and Priscilla "the Puritan 
maiden." He sailed for many years as a ship-master, and 
seems to have been in the employ of his fellow church- 
member, John Hull, who records in his Diary : 

" 1669 nth mo. Master John Alden went for England in 
the ketch 'Friendship,* being three-fourths mine." " 1672. 
I lost my ketch, three-fourths, with her lading, from Virginia, 
taken by the Dutch from John Alden, worth about two hun- 
dred pounds." 



224 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

He was a leading and much respected citizen of Boston, 

and, " as a brave and efficient seaman, in command of the 

armed vessel of the colony, he had done noble sendee in 

the French and Indian wars." But his good standing 

and patriotic service did not secure him against suspicion 

and accusation, in the days of the witchcraft excitement. 

We are told that he was not " so circumspect, when they 

brought him before the court at Salem in May, but he 

could use the strong language of an old sea dog, as he 

was, when he was confronted by a lot of wenches whom 

he had never before seen, and accused of bewitching 

them. Perhaps his indignation rendered it easier for the 

magistrates to send him to Boston jail, where he remained 

fifteen weeks, when he escaped and was concealed by his 

relatives in Duxbury till the delusion was past." Judge 

Sewall tells how in one of the intermissions of the court, 

he was present at a fast at Captain Alden's, upon his 

account (July 20, 1692). 

" Mr. Willard pray'd. I read a sermon out of Dr. Preston, 
1st and 2 d Uses of God's Alsufficiency. Capt. Scottow 
pray'd, Mr. Allen came in and pray'd, Mr. Cotton Mather, 
then Capt. Hill. Sung the first part 103 Ps., concluded about 
five a clock. Brave Shower of Rain while Capt. Scottow 
was praying, after much Drought." 

The good Judge, of whose penitence in this connection 
we shall have occasion to speak again, was not satisfied 
with the public confession which he made in the South 
Meeting-house, but went and made private acknowledg- 
ments to those who had been wronged. 

June 13, 1693 ; " I visit Capt. Alden and his wife, and tell 
them I was sorry for their Sorrow and Temptations by reason 
of his Imprisonment, and that was glad of his Restauration." 

He seems to have continued his visits and attentions to 
them, and was with Captain Alden when he died. 

March 14, 1 701-2 ; " Capt. John Alden expired ; Going to 
visit him, I hapened to be there at the time." 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 225 

Mrs. Alden died five or six years before her husband. 

Benjamin Thurston, freeman, 1665. Married 1 2 Dec. 
1660, Elizabeth (1674), daughter of Robert (1669) and Sarah 
(1674) Walker. In the autumn of 1678, Judge Sewall 
was very ill with the small pox, which was then making 
terrible ravages in the town. He afterward wrote in his 
Journal : 

" Multitudes died, two of my special Friends, viz. Mr. John 
Noyes, and Ensign Benjamin Thirston, who both died while 
I lay sick." 

The Walkers and Thurstons had known the Sewall 
family in England. 

William Salter, admitted a member of the First 
Church, 1635; freeman, 1636; shoemaker. He owned 
Spectacle Island. He kept the prison, 1656, and long 
after, says Savage, was witness to the will of the wretched 
Mrs. Hibbins, who was " executed as a witch, when she was 
only a scold." He died, 10 Aug. 1675, aged 68. His 
wife, Mary (1674), survived him. 

John Morse, probably son of John Morse of Dedham, 
one of the early settlers, and of his wife, Annis. Born, 
8 June, 1639 5 freeman, 1669. He and Theophilus Frary 
were appointed commissaries of subsistence in Philip's 
war. He was one of the original proprietors of Mendon, 
where lands were assigned to him, 1667 and '68. He 
died in 1678 or '79. His widow, Elizabeth (1670), ap- 
plied to the government for compensation on account of 
his military services. 

Josiah Belcher, son of Gregory, of Braintree, and 
afterward of Boston. Married Ranis (1674), daughter of 
Elder Edward Rainsford (1669).

226 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

Seth Perry, son of Arthur and Elizabeth Perry. 
Born, 7 March, 1639; artill. co. 1662; freeman, 1666. 
Father and son were both tailors. 

James Pemberton, Newbury, 1646; freeman, 1648. 
Brewer near the Town Dock. Father of the third minister 
of the South Church. 

Oct. 10, 1696; " Bro r Pemberton dies." — Sewall. 

William Dawes, born in Sudbury, Suffolk, England, 
1620; came to New England, 1635 '> nrst settled at Brain- 
tree; freeman, 1646; moved to Boston about 1652, and 
bought an estate in Sudbury Street, then known as the 
lane from Prison Lane (Court Street) to the mill pond. 
The mansion house remained in the possession of the 
family for five generations. It was pulled down by the 
British during their occupation of Boston in 1775. 

March 24, 1723-04; "William Daws, Mason, dyes about 
2 pm. A good old man, full of days, is got well to the end 
of his weary Race." — Sewall. 

His family was active and useful in the Old South 
for an hundred and fifty years. The Hon. Thomas Dawes 
(1749), deacon, was his great-great-grandson. 

i. 

Joseph Davis, perhaps of Roxbury ; there married, 
1670, Sarah Chamberlain, "but I know not that either 
belonged to that place." — Savage. 

The Rev. Thomas Thacher, first minister of the South 
Church. He was born 1 May, 1620, in Salisbury, Eng- 
land, where his father, the Rev. Peter Thacher, was 
rector of St. Edmund's Church. Having received a 
good grammar school education, his father offered to send 
him to either of the universities, but he declined to go 
because of the religious subscriptions required by them. 
He came to New England in 1635, and studied for several 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 227 

years under the Rev. Charles Chauncy, then minister of 
Scituate. "As was not uncommon at that period, he 
studied two professions — medicine and theology, in both 
of which he obtained a high reputation. In the former 
profession, he has the honor of having been the author of 
the first medical tract ever published in Massachusetts. 
He first settled in the ministry at Weymouth, where he 
continued with great acceptance more than twenty years." 
He removed, 1664, to Boston, "where he preached occa- 
sionally, but was chiefly employed in practising as a phy- 
sician, till he was chosen pastor of the Third Church in 
1669. As a Christian and a minister he was greatly and 
deservedly esteemed. He was among the most popular 
preachers in the colony. His sermons, of which one only 
is known to have been published, are said to have been 
'elaborate and affectionate.' " — Wisner. 

Mr. Thacher was installed 16 Feb. 1670, and continued 
sole pastor for eight years. His last sermon was preached 
for the Rev. Increase Mather, from the text " Grow in 
grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour 
Jesus Christ ; " immediately after, he visited a sick per- 
son, was himself seized with a fever, and died 15 Oct.

himself.

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 229 

Daniel Henchman, schoolmaster ; freeman, 1672 ; 
artill. co. 1675 ; soldier in Philip's war. 

" First appears in our local history as the assistant teacher 
in the Latin School, then under the charge of Robert Wood- 
mansey. In 1669 he was appointed on the committee for the 
survey of a new plantation, and from the history of Wor- 
cester it appears that he was one of the most important persons 
in laying out and settling that town. He died there in 1685. 
He was a connection of Judge Sewall, and there was in 
Sewall's house a room called by his name. Everything in 
his letters shows that he was a good soldier, and a prompt, 
executive man, and he is, perhaps, the most prominent repre- 
sentative of Boston, as the war goes on." — Hale. 

The Liberty Tree, according to a tradition recorded by 
Dr. Shurtleff, was planted by him, it being on his estate. 
By his wife, Sarah, he had a son, Hezekiah, who was father 
of Daniel, elected deacon in the South Church, 17 Apri^ 
1 719. His second wife was Mary, daughter of John 
Richmond and widow of William Poole-; she died, 1690. 

Oct. 19, 1685 ; " About Nine aclock at night News comes 
to Town of Capt. Henchman's Death at Worcester last Thors-

Servants, a white and black, carried him to, and put him in 
his Grave." — Sewall.

Anne Pollard, wife of William ; she died, 5 Dec. 

1725, aged 103 or 105; the church registry gives the 

latter age. She made a deposition when she was 89 years 

of age, to the effect that her husband was a tenant of 

Richard Pepys on land near the bottom of the Common, 

and that Pepys bought the land of the Rev. William 

Blackstone. 

Dec. 8. 1725 ; " After Lecture Mrs. Ane Pollard is buried

(1674), whose second husband was Deacon Jacob Eliot 
(1669), was her half-sister. Theophilus Frary's (1669) 
first wife, Hannah, was a sister of Deacon Eliot. Seth 
Perry bought some of the Eliot lands, and there seems 
to have been some informality about the deed ; this is 
supposed to have been the cause of the difference between 
Frary and Perry, to which Judge Sewall refers in his 
Diary, and which he and Mr. Willard interested them- 
selves to adjust. 

Aug. 19, 171 1 ; " Mrs Perry is buried, a good woman, aged 
68."— Sewall.

has the reputation of being the first woman who landed

Lane, adjacent to Governor Winthrop's, came into the 
possession of John Winslow, 1671.

236 the old south church. 

Joseph Wheeler, 

Mary Wheeler. 

Judge Sewall refers frequently to Joseph Wheeler in 
his Diary. He was a member of the artill. co. and promi- 
nent in the town. A private religious meeting at his 
house is mentioned, Oct. 1696. In 1698 he assisted Mr. 
Willard in the matter of Roger Judd's (1684) contumacy.

been her former husband, or whose child she was, I see 
not. Perhaps he [John Blake] lived some years in Bos- 
ton about 1663, and died there early in 1689." — Savage. 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 237 

Manasseh Beck, son of Alexander and his wife Eliz- 
abeth (Hinds), of Roxbury. "Was freeman 1672, and 
this is all I know of him." — Savage. His wife was proba- 
bly a daughter of William Salter (1669). 



1672. 

Ephraim Savage, son of Major Thomas Savage (1669), 
by his first wife, Faith ; Harv. Coll. 1662. 

"He was freeman, 1672 ; artill. co. 1674; its captain, 1683, 
and was for many years town clerk, and in that period the 
records were carefully kept, except when he was engaged 
with his father in Philip's war, and served in the unhappy 
expedition of Sir William Phips, 1690, then having command 
of one of the fleet ; was representative, 1703 and six years 
more, and took the head of a company of the force drafted 
and sent on service to Nova Scotia, in the abortive campaign, 
1707." — Savage. 

He died, 1731. His first wife was Mary, eldest daugh- 
ter of the second Edmund Quincy, of Braintree, and 
Joanna (Hoar) his wife ; she was a cousin of Judge 
Sewall's wife, and the Judge, in his Diary, frequently 
speaks of Ephraim Savage as "Cousin Savage." He 
married, 1678, Sarah, daughter of the Rev. Samuel 
Hough, of Reading; and, 1688, Elizabeth, widow of 
Timothy Symmes, and daughter of Captain Francis 
Norton, of Charlestown. His third marriage was solem- 
nized by the Rev. Charles Morton, and was one of the 
earliest instances in New England of marriage by a 
clergyman. Mr. Savage's fourth wife was Elizabeth, 
widow of Peter Butler, and daughter of Abraham Brown, 
who survived him. 

Feb. 4, 1712-13; " Privat Meeting at our house, pretty

238 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH.

abeth (Coytmore). She died very suddenly, at the mar- 
riage of Daniel Quincy and Anna Shepard, which was 
solemnized at her house, 9 Nov. 1682. 

Sarah Crispe — Williams. Sarah, youngest daugh- 
ter of the Rev. John Wheelwright, first married Richard 
Crispe, and, then, Nathaniel Williams (1675), deacon of 
the South Church. Judge Sewall gives the following ac- 
count of her in connection with her death and funeral. 

March 3, 1726-7; "Mrs. Sarah Williams dies, a very 
pious Gentlewoman, daughter of the Rev'd Mr. Wheelwright 
of Salisbury, whom Mr. Rich d Crisp first Married, by her he 
had a Son and daughter. The Son died a young Man. Cap* 
Nathan 1 Williams married her after M r Crisp's death, who 
also died Dec r 23. 1714. So that Mrs. Williams liv'd his 
widow somthing more than twelve years and died on Friday 
night between 10 and ir. a-clock, after or in the great and 
violent Storm of Snow, March, 3, 1726-7 in the 79 th year of 
her age, and was entombed in the South-burying place on 
Tuesday March, 7 th following. Bearers, were Sewall, 
Byfield ; Simeon Stoddard esq r , Sam 1 Checkly esq r ; John 
Campbell esq r , M r Benjamin Walker. Mrs. Sarah Clark her 
only daughter being the principal Mourner." 

Richard Crispe was a merchant, who came from Jamaica. 
His first wife was Hannah, widow of Benjamin Richards, 
and daughter of William Hudson, Jr. 

The Rev. Leonard Hoar, born in Gloucestershire, about 
1630; it is probable that he came to New England with 
two brothers, John and Daniel, and two sisters, Margery 
and Joanna, and with his mother, Joanna. He graduated 
at Harv. Coll. 1650 ; returned to England, 1653, an d was 
presented to the living of Wanstead, in Essex, from which 
he was ejected by the Act of Uniformity, 1662. In 1671, 
he received the degree of M.D. from the Univ. of Cam- 
bridge. In the summer of 1672, he came to Boston, ac- 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 239 

companied by his wife, " upon some invitation relating to 
a settlement in the Pastoral Charge with the South 
Church," and preached as an assistant to Mr. Thacher, 
sojourning with his kinsman John Hull (1669), tne mint- 
master. Full notes of the sermons preached by him at 
this time are in the possession of the Mass. Hist. Society. 
Hull says that Dr. Hoar was sent for from England by 
the Third Church, but the presidency of Harvard College 
being vacant, "it was the earnest desire of the ministers 
and magistrates that they would spare him for that work, 
and upon Nov. 15 they did yield him up to that service." 
His course at Cambridge was beset with difficulties 
almost from the first, and he held the office only until 
March, 1675. The recital of these difficulties cannot be 
given here ; it is to be found in Quincy's History of Har- 
vard College. It will be appropriate, however, to say that 
one of the sins laid to his charge was his "act in joining 
a church in Boston before receiving a dismissal and recom- 
mendation from the one to which he belonged in England." 
— Sibley. Cotton Mather, who was an undergraduate at 
the time, says, " Considered either as a Scholar or as a 
Christian," he "was truly a Worthy Man, and he was 
generally reputed such, untill happening, I can scarce 
tell how, to fall under the Displeasure of some that made 
a Figure in the Neighbourhood, the Young Men in the Col- 
ledge took advantage therefrom, to ruine his Reputation, 
as far as they were able." "His grief threw him into 
a consumption ; " and he died in Boston, 28 Nov. 1675, 
and was buried at Braintree. He married Bridget, 
daughter of John Lisle, a very distinguished man, one of 
the judges of Charles I., some time lord-president of 
the high court of justice, and joint commissioner of the 
great seal. Under the Stuart Restoration, his wife, the 
Lady Alice, had to pay the penalty for his republicanism 
with her life. She was the first victim of Jeffreys on that 
circuit of which Macaulay has said that its " memory will

last as long as our race and language." Mrs. Hoar be- 
came the wife of Hezekiah Usher, Jr., but the marriage 
was not a happy one. Sewall mentions her joining the 
First Church, 31 Jan. 1685-6. In 1687, sne went with 
her daughter to England, and remained there until after 
Mr. Usher's death. She died in 1723 ; in her will she re- 
membered the poor of the Third Church ; she left her es- 
tate to her only child, Bridget, wife of the Rev. Thomas 
Cotton, of London. 

Sarah Walley, wife of the Hon. John Walley (1679). 
She died on Sunday, 11 Nov. 171 1, just two months be- 
fore her husband. Her funeral took place on the following 
Thursday ; her bearers were : " Wait Winthrop esq r , 
Elisha Hutchinson esq r ; Addington, Sergeant ; Belchar, 
Stoddard. All the Councillors had Scarvs." Judge 
Sewall was holding court in Salem ; but he tells us that 
he received from Major Walley (1679) a good lute-string 
scarf and ring, with gloves. 

Sarah Balston, dismissed to the church in Marsh- 
field. James Balston, Boston, married Sarah, daughter 
of Ralph Root, and had a daughter Sarah, born 26 Aug. 
1653.

" A cooper, son of Richard; freeman, 1673; removed to 
Braintree, 1675 ; b}' wife, Sarah, had Joseph, Nathan, and 
several daughters; died 8 April, 171S, aged 72." — Savage.

Joined by letter from the church in Concord. Judge 
Sewall records that in June, 1688, Mr. James Graham,

John Drury. "Boston, 1672; freeman, 1673; car- 
penter ; son of Hugh and Lydia Drury ; by wife Mary, 
had Thomas and John, and died 1678." — Savage. It 
may have been his second son of whom Judge Sewall 
records that "John Drury, a desirable young man," died 
of the small-pox, November, 1702. 



'673- 
John Joyliffe. 

" He was one of the connecting links with the first settlers. 
He married, in 1657, Anna, widow of Robert Knight, and 
previously widow of Thomas Cromwell, that rich privateer 
who settled in Boston." — Eds. Sewall. "He was freeman 
1673, many years a selectman, one of the patriots of 16S9, 
who put Andros in prison, town recorder in 1691 ; was made 
by Increase Mather one of the Council in the Charter of 
William and Mary, but dropped at the first popular choice."

In the South Church he was one of those to whom was 
assigned the difficult and delicate duty of arranging the 

sittings.

second, Susanna (1698), widow of the Rev. John Bailey; 
third, Elizabeth, widow of the first Joshua Gee. 

" Lord's Day, Dec r 17, 1727; I was surprised to hear M r 
Thacher of Milton, my old Friend, pray'd for as dangerously 
Sick. Next Day, Dec r 18, 1727. I am inform'd by M r 
Gerrish, that my dear friend died last night; which I doubt 
bodes ill to Milton and the Province, his dying at this Time, 
though in the 77 th year of his Age. Dens avertat Omen I 
Friday, Dec r 22 ; The day after the Fast was inter'd. 
Bearers, Rev. M r Nehemiah Walter, M r Joseph Baxter ; M r 
John Swift, M r Sam 1 Hunt ; M r Joseph Sewall, M r Thomas 
Prince. I was inclin'd before, and having a pair of Gloves 
sent me, I determined to go to the Funeral, if the Weather 
prov'd favourable, which it did, and I hired Blake's Coach 
with four Horses ; my son, M r Cooper and M r Prince went 
with me. Refresh'd there with Meat and Drink ; got thither 
about half an hour past one. It was sad to see triumphed 
over tny dear Friend ! I rode in my Coach to the Burying 
place ; not being able to get nearer by reason of the many 
Horses. * * * Now I can go to no more Funerals of my 
Class-mates ; nor none be at mine ; for the survivers, the 
Rev'd M r Samuel Mather at Windsor, and the Rev'd M r 
Taylor at Westfield, [are] one Hundred Miles off, and are 
entirely enfeebled. I humbly pray that Christ may be 
graciously present with us all Three both in Life, and in 
Death, and then we shall safely and Comfortably walk through 
the shady valley that leads to Glory." — Sewall. 

Mr. Mather died in 1728, Mr. Taylor in 1729, and the 
good Judge, the last survivor of his class, in 1730. The 
last sermon preached by Dr. Cotton Mather (printed after 
his death), was his funeral sermon on the Rev. Peter 
Thacher : " The Comfortable Chambers, Opened and 
Visited." 



Hannah Howard. 

" Edward Howard, Boston, married, 7 June, 1661, Hannah, 
daughter of Thomas Hawkins the baker ; and it is strange 
that we hear no more of him." — Savage. 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 243 

Mary Atkinson, second wife of Theodore Atkinson 
(1669). She was a daughter of the Rev. John Wheel- 
wright, M.A., Sydney College, Cambridge; and her first 
husband was Edward Lyde. 

Jan y 4, 1711-12; "Mrs. M. Atkinson, born in New Eng- 
land, aged 73. years, buried in a Tomb in the New-burying 
place, from her son M r Lyde's house." — Seivall. 

Her sister, Hannah, was the first wife of Anthony 
Checkley. 

Mary Butler, wife of Stephen Butler. 

Deborah Prout, a daughter of the Rev. Zechariah 
Symmes, and wife of Timothy Prout the second, who, 
Savage says, had been a master mariner, and in 1676 had 
" had striking peril in shipwreck, * * * as in Hubbard, 
643, may be read : and was probably lost at a much later 
day." It must have been the father of whom Sewall 
wrote : 

Nov. 3, 1702; " Capt. Tim Prout died last night, aged 
more than 80 years." 

Timothy Prout, born 1666, was actively connected 
with Old South affairs, although his name does not ap- 
pear on the list of members ; he was on the building 
committee for the new meeting house in 1728-29; his 
son Timothy became a member in 1740. Mrs. Deborah 
Prout died 13 March, 171 6. 

Moses Pain,

Joined by letter from the church at Braintree. Moses 
Pain, son of Moses of Braintree, by wife Elizabeth had 
nine or ten children. 

"Artill. co. 1644; freeman, 1647; lieut. and a repre- 
sentative, 1666 and 8: removed to Boston; died 15 Dec. 
1690." — Savage. 



244 THE 0LD SOUTH CHURCH. 

Dec. 19, 1690; "Three desirable men now dead; one out 
of each Church. Our M r Pain the oldest, being about 68." — 
Sewall. 

William Needham ; Braintree. 

"May have been of Newport, 1638, and came afterward 
to Massachusetts ; freeman, 164S; removed, I think to Bos- 
ton, had probably no wife or children, for in his will of 10 
June, 1690, he freely gives one-third of his estate to Old 
South Church, opposite to which was his residence, and two- 
thirds to William and John, sons of his kinsman John Need- 
ham late of Boston, deceased, and he minutely disposes of 
his furniture, and died, 30 [?] Dec. afterward." — Savage. 

Dec. 6, 1690; " Brother W m Needham is buried about 3 
a-clock : Bearers, Deacon Eliot, Frary, Allen, Tomson, 
Bridgham. Had Rings and Gloves. Executors sent me a 
Ring." — Sewall. 

His wife, Grace (1673), must have died some time be- 
fore. He seems to have served as sexton of the South 
Meeting House, and his name appears in connection with 
the usurpation of Andros. 

Friday, March 25, 1687 : (probably Good Friday) ; " The 
Governour has service in the South Meeting house. Good- 
m[an] Needham, though had resolved to the contrary, was 
prevailed upon to Ring the Bell and open the door at the 
Governour's Cofhand, one Smith and Hill, joiner and Shoe- 
maker, being very busy about it." — Sewall. 

Grace Needham, wife of William (1673). They both 
joined by letter of dismission from the church at Braintree.

the South Church, was going from Mount Hope to Rhode 
Island in a Canoo with an Indian, was overset by the wind 
and Ice, drowned. The Indian escaped." — Sewall. 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 245 

Benjamin Thwing, freeman, 1680, by wife Abigail (1671) 
had Benjamin and Lydia. 

Isaac Walker, merchant, came from Salem to Boston, 
1645; freeman, 1646; he was an active proprietor of 
Lancaster, but did not remove thither ; lieut. artill. co. 
1676; died, 19 Oct. 1688. His third (or fourth) wife was 
Hannah (1682), daughter of Deacon Theophilus Frary 
(1669). She afterward became the wife of Andrew 
Belcher (1697). 

Monday, Oct. 22, 1688: "Mr. Isaac Walker is buried. 
Bearers, M r James Taylor, M r Francis Burroughs, Capt. Tho. 
Savage, M r Simeon Stoddard, M r George Elleston, M r Sam 1 
Checkly ; Deacon Eliot and I led the young widow, and had 
Scarfs and Gloves." — Sewall.

from the baptismal register ; but there were two or three 
of this name. 

Elizabeth Davis. 



r 



June 24, 1709; "Elisa. Davis, Widow is buried; M 1 
Dering, Hill ; Williams, Meers ; Blish, Draper, Bearers. 
They invited me and my wife by sending us good Gloves." — 
Sewall. 



Margaret Thacher, wife of the Rev. Thomas Thacher, 
first minister of the South Church. She was the only 
child of Henry Webb, a merchant, who left a very con- 
siderable property for those days, and gave to Harvard 
College the estate in Washington Street, upon which the 
store of Messrs Little, Brown & Co. stands. She was 
born in Salisbury, Wilts, and baptized there 25 Sept. 
1625. She married, 1642, Jacob Sheaf; and several 
years after his death, she became the second wife of Mr. 
Thacher. She died, 24 Feb. 1693-94. 



246 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

Mrs. Thacher, and the twenty-two whose names follow 
upon the register, — most of them wives and daughters of 
the founders of the Third Church, — were members of the 
First Church, to which they applied repeatedly for letters 
of dismission and recommendation, but in vain. At 
length, an appeal was taken to an Ecclesiastical Council, 
and the statement of their case, with their autograph sig- 
natures attached, is on file among the church papers. 
The decision of the council was : 

"That such members may joyne, and such a church unto 
whome they desire to joyne may receive them into their 
fellowship, without the transgression of any rule of church 
order or any just offence given unto y e church unto wch they 
did belong, provided they be in a capacity, by a convenient 
vicinity and other necessary circumstances, to walk with that 
church constantly in y e course of church fellowp. and come 
according to their church covenant." 

Many years passed before the efforts of the brethren of 
the Third or South Church to become reconciled with the 
First Church were successful. 

" On 29 March, 1670, at a meeting called about our dis- 
senting brethren, the question, whether the church see light 
from the word of God to dismiss our dissenting brethren that 
desire it, was answered in the negative unanimously." — 
History of the First Church, p. 117. 

" In 1682, the disagreement between the First and Third 
churches, which had continued for fourteen years, came to 
an end. An effort was made in that year to establish an 
Episcopal church in Boston. Both societies regarded such a 
church as a common enemy, and so both came together and 
united their energies to prevent its establishment. The pro- 
posal for a reconciliation was voted by First Church, April 
23, 1682."— Ibid, pp. 134, 135. 



Elizabeth Gibbs — Corwin. Elizabeth, daughter of 
Jacob Sheaf, by his wife Margaret (afterward Mrs. 
Thacher (1674), ), married, first, Robert Gibbs, a noted 
merchant; and, secondly, in 1676, Jonathan Curwin or 
Corwin. Her second husband was born in Salem, 1640;

freeman, 1671 ; representative, 1684, 1689; assistant, 

1689; named councillor in the new charter; judge of 
Superior Court. He died, 9 June, 1718. 



Mary Norton, wife of the Rev. John Norton, who was 
born in England, 1606, educated at St. Peter's Col- 
lege, Cambridge, and, being dissatisfied with the state of 
things in the English Church, came to New England in 
the " Hopewell " with Governor Winslow, 1635 ; he went 
to Ipswich and was ordained there ; was called to Boston 
to fill John Cotton's pulpit, 1656, and died, 1663. His 
wife was the third daughter of John Ferneley, of West 
Creting, Suffolk. She was born 2 October, baptized 21 
October, 1602. In the Magnalia she is spoken of as "a 
gentlewoman both of good estate and good esteem." In 
the controversies which arose in connection with the call 
and settlement of the Rev. John Davenport, of New 
Haven, as the successor of her husband in the First 
Church, she cast in her lot with those who seceded from 
it, and founded the Third or South Church. On the 1st 
of April, 1669, she gave by deed the land on which the 
first meeting-house was built. This was the southern 
part, and somewhat less than half, of the land afterward 
owned by the parish. The conveyance was to " Capt. 
Thomas Savage, Capt. William Davis, M r Hezekiah 
Usher, M r Edward Rawson, M r John Hull, M r Peter 
Oliver, M r Josiah Scottow, M r Edward Ransford, M r 
Richard Trusdall, and M r Jacob Eliott, and to such as 
they shall associate to themselves, their heirs and- suc- 
cessors forever, for the erecting of a House for their as- 
sembling themselves together publicly to worship God," 
etc. On the 30th of June, 1677, she gave, by another 
deed, the eastern half of the remainder of the land ; and 
two months later, by will, the residue, together with the 
house in which she had lived. 



248 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

" The lot was one of the original grants to John Winthrop, 
the first Governor, and the father of the colony, and the house 
just mentioned was the mansion in which he resided till his 
death. The house was of wood, two stories high, and stood 
nearly opposite the end of School Street, fronting South ; till 
the first Meeting House was erected, there was upon the lot 
no other building, and the premises presented the appearance 
indicated by the name by which they are described in the 
early records, The Green, being skirted along the main street 
by a row of beautiful button-wood trees." — Wisner. 

Mrs. Norton's second deed, after referring to the former 
one, and to the grantees therein named as " erecting a 
Meeting House on the place and becoming a church of 
Christ, with whom I have had communion ever since," 
makes conveyance to " Thomas Savage, Edward Rawson, 
John Hull, Joshua Scottow, Edward Raynsford, and Jacob 
Elliot, yet alive, and to such as they have associated unto 
them in church fellowship, or shall be associated to them 
and to their heirs and successors forever." The language 
of the will is : "I give and bequeath unto the Third Church 
of Christ in Boston, my now dwelling house, with all the 
land belonging to the same, as it is situated near the 
Third Meeting House in Boston aforesaid, with all profits, 
privileges," etc.

sister of Deacon Eliot (1669), first wife of Deacon Frary 
(1669), and the mother of his children. She died before 
1690.

she survived. 

" In 16S0, widow Mary Salter sold half her land, bounded 
east by the sea, west by the highway to Roxbury, south by 
the old highway to Roxbury, and north by land of Deacon 
Jacob Eliot." — Eds. SeivalL

Sunset she expired, to our very surprising Grief and Sorrow.

ton, and for nineteen consecutive years chosen a repre- 
sentative. He was married four times : first, to Mary 
Downing, niece of Governor Winthrop ; fourthly, to Mary, 
widow of Thomas Savage. One of his sons was the Rev. 
Solomon Stoddard, Harv. Coll. 1662, the learned and ex- 
cellent minister of Northampton, and ancestor of Charles 
Stoddard (1821); his other sons, Simeon (1691) and 
Anthony, were very useful members of the South Church.

died in 1687. 

Dec. 21, 1695 '■> " Between 8. and 9. I went to see Dame

Their daughter, Elizabeth (1709), says Savage, married 
John Walley, possibly grandson of the Rev. Thomas ; 
and next, Simon Willard, "but," he adds, "this union is

nearly related, probably, to the family of the Rev. Thomas, 
who married Elizabeth Alden, the daughter.

became members of the South Church. Her daughter, 
Mary, married the Rev. John Norton (Harv. Coll. 1671), 
nephew of the Rev. John, of Boston ; he was minister of 
Hingham, and the old meeting house, now standing, was 
built during his pastorate. 

Jan. 8, 1704-5; "I went to the Funeral of Mrs. Johafia 
Mason. She was a vertuous, pious woman, in the 70 th year

Amory. 

Elizabeth Rock, first wife of Joseph Rock (1669), and 
daughter of John Coggan. 

Lydia Scottow, wife of Joshua Scottow (1669), whom 
she survived several years. Both she and Mrs. Rock

bers of the church, although for some reason they did 
not join until three months after the other wives of the 
founders.

Mrs. Mather, probably Sarah, widow of the Rev. John 
Cotton, of St. Botolph's, Boston, Lincolnshire, and after- 
ward of the First Church, Boston, and third wife of the Rev. 
Richard Mather, of Dorchester, the persecuted non-con- 
formist clergyman who came to New England in 1635. 

" He was a man of excellent discretion, of less learning, it 
is probable, than his ambitious son Increase, and less brilliancy, 
it is clear, than his eccentric grandson, the never dying author 
of Magnalia, but in true service as a minister, happier than 
either and better than both. He was settled at Dorchester, 
23 Aug. 1636; his wife died 1655, and he married, 26 Aug. 
1656, Sarah, widow of his great friend John Cotton, and died 
22 April, 1669. A few days before, he had met a great in- 
dignity, in being refused admittance with sundry others, sent 
by an ecclesiastical council, met at Boston, to attempt conci- 
liation in the First Church there." — Savage. 

John Hull (1669) says in his Diary : 

" The Church of Boston would not let him into the doors, 
when he, with sundry others, waited with a letter from the 
Council to them ; but the Lord soon opened his way into the 
church triumphant." 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 255 

The widow made her will 3 May, 1670, but did not die 
for six years. 

Widow Clements. 

William Clements, artill. co. 1662, married Mary, daugh- 
ter of Joseph Rock (1669), "and of him," says Savage, "I 
hear no more." 

Timothy Batt, youngest son of Christopher and Ann 
Batt, who came from Salisbury, Wilts, 1638 ; freeman, 
1673 ; by trade a tailor; had wife, Abigail. 

Christopher Batt was a tanner, and bought a large es- 
tate opposite to the site on which the Old South Meeting 
House was afterward erected, having the property of 
Peter Sergeant (1689) on one side, and that of Edward 
Rawson (1669) on the other. He was accidentally killed 
in 1 66 1, by a shot from a weapon in the hand of one of 
his sons. His wife, Ann, was a sister of the Rev. Peter 
Thacher, of St. Edmund's, Salisbury, and, therefore, aunt 
of the Rev. Thomas Thacher (1669) of the South Church. 
In her will, dated 14 March, 1678-9, she makes Edward 
Rawson, whom she calls her " trusty and deare friend," 
and her "honoured and faithfull friend," her executor. 

Mary Usher — Nowell (printed Newel, p. 10). 

Hezekiah Usher, the elder (1669), married for his third 

wife, Mary, widow of Peter Butler, daughter of William 

Alford ; she survived him, married the Rev. Samuel 

Nowell, of Charlestown, outlived him, and died, 14 Aug. 

1693. 

Sabbath, May 13, 1688; "Lord's Super at the South-. 
Church. Near half an hour after twelve by that time I got 
home, by my Clock : and five by that time got home in the 
afternoon : Day cloudy. Mrs. Nowel here, sits in our Pue, 
and dines with us. A fine Rain begins at 7. p. in. M'

Aug. 15, 1693; "Mrs. Mary Nowell buried. M r Cook, 
Major Hutchinson, Sewall, Allen, Willard, Baily, Bearers. 
Was laid in M r Usher's Tomb."— Sewall. 

Mrs. Brading. James Brading, of Newbury, removed 
to Boston 1659, married Hannah, daughter of Joseph 
(1669) and Elizabeth (1674) Rock, and had Elizabeth, 
James, and Joseph. Elizabeth became the first wife of 
Edward Bromfield (1698), and had a daughter Elizabeth 
(1700). 

The will of Joseph Rock (mercer), probated 3 Jan. 1683, 
makes bequests to his dearly beloved wife Mary, to the 
Rev. Samuel Willard, and to the Deacons of the Third 
Church, and gives the rest of his property to the children 
of his daughter, Hannah Brading, and to his great-grand- 
child, Elizabeth Bromfield. 



•675- 
John Noyes, freeman, 1676, married Sarah (1670), daugh- 
ter of Peter Oliver (1669), and had Sarah, John and 
Oliver (1693). Sewall mentions his death from small 
pox, 9 Nov. 1678. 

Deborah Clement — Williams. Samuel Clement, 
probably eldest son of Austin or Augustine, of Dorchester, 

married for his second wife Deborah . Deborah 

Clement had two sons, Augustine and Samuel, baptized 
2 May, 1675, when she joined the church. 

Lvdia Chapin. There was a David Chapin, of Spring- 
field, who married in Boston, 29 Aug. 1654, Lydia Crump, 
and had a daughter Lydia, born 19 June, 1655. 

Hannah Stiles — Warren; received from the church 
in Newbury. Savage says that she was the second wife 
of Peter Warren, of Boston. 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 257 

The Rev. Woodrop (printed Woodross, p. 10). 

Hull, in his Diary, says that a Scotch minister, Mr. 
Woodrop, arrived in Boston from Jamaica in the autumn 
of 1674, and he seems to have remained here several 
years. Sewall mentions him two or three times. In 
May, 1676, he speaks of Mr. Woodrop, the Rev. Gershom 
Hobart, the Rev. Nehemiah Hobart, and three of his 
classmates, Samuel Phips, the Rev. Thomas Weld and 
the Rev. Edward Taylor, as coming after lecture and sit- 
ting with him. On the 12th of July, 1687, he went down 
the harbor with a party of friends sailing for England. 

" Goe in the Ship M r Wharton, Sam. Newman, M r Charles 
Morton, M r Woodrop, Mrs. Bridget Usher, and her Daughter 
Mrs. Bridget Hoar, and others. Had an extraordinary good 
wind. M r Usher wept at taking leave of 's Wife and 
Daughter." — [See ante, 240.] 

Against Mr. Woodrop's name on the register is re- 
corded, " removed into Scotland." 

Nathaniel Williams, second of the name ; baptized, 
25 Sept. 1642; freeman, 1676; had grant of land, 1679; 
was engaged in Philip's war as a commissary; and his 
name appears with the names of other capitalists who had 
advanced money to the Government at that time. Chosen 
deacon of the South Church, 15 Oct. 1693, probably to 
succeed Jacob Eliot. His first wife was Mary (1670), 
daughter of Peter Oliver (1669), , and widow of Jonathan 
Shrimpton. His second was Sarah (Wheelwright) (1672), 
widow of Richard Crispe. 

The townsmen voted, 9 March, 1690-1, 

"'That M r Nathaniell Williams, M r Benjamin Walker, M r 
William Coleman and M r Symeon Stoddard be Overseers of 
the Poore in this Towne for the year ensueing,' and thus origi- 
nated in name the Board of Overseers of the Poor in Boston."

very pleasant weather. Capt. Williams buried ; Bearers, 
Col. Checkly, Capt. Hill, M r Tay, &c."-5wa//. 

Robert Butcher, 
Elizabeth Butcher. 

They are mentioned more than once in Sewall's Diary. 

Their son All win joined the Third Church, 1705. Samuel 

Gerrish (1707) published a tract, the subject of which must 

have been their grandchild : 

" Early Piety, exemplified in Elizabeth Butcher of Boston, 
who Died July 13, 1718, Being just Eight Years and Eleven 
Months Old. With a Preface by the Rev. M r Sewall." 

Lydia Batt, wife of Thomas, who was a son of Chris- 
topher and Ann Batt. Thomas was a tanner, and suc- 
ceeded to the business of his father. 

Mrs. Waldron — Brenton, probably Priscilla, wife of 
Isaac Waldron, a physician, who was of York 1670, and 
removed to Boston about 1676; they had children bap- 
tized in the South Meeting House between 1677 and 1680. 
He died, 1683. 



1676. 

Mrs. Sanford, probably Sarah, widow of Robert Potter, 
and wife of John Sanford, schoolmaster, of whom Savage 
says : " was perhaps the freeman of 1 1 Oct. 1670, and died 
10 Feb. 1677. His will of 19 Jan. preceding, proved 24 
April following, mentions no children, but gives all his es- 
tate to wife Sarah for life." At her death the schoolhouse 
and land adjoining were to go to the Third Church. His 
wife Sarah and Timothy Wheeler were the executors. 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 259 

" At a church meeting, March 20, 1693-94, Voted that Cap- 
tain Samuel Sewal and M r Theophilus Frary, be empowered 
to agree with the relations or executors of M r Jn° Sanforth, 
about a certain house and land bequeathed by said Sanforth to 
y e South Church, and to give or make to him or them a suffi- 
cient conveyance of any title which this church hath of claim 
to said house and land by vertue of such will." 



.677. 

Gilbert Cole, freeman, 1677. He joined the church 
the same day with Samuel Sewall, who thus refers to it : 

March 30, 1677 ; " I, together with Gilbert Cole, was ad- 
mitted into Mr. Thacher's Church, making a Solem covenant 
to take the L. Jehovah for our God, and to walk in Brotherly 
Love and watchfulness to Edification. Goodm. Cole first 
spake, then I, then the Relations of the Women [AnneGanet 
and Rebecca Hacket] were read : as we spake, so were we ad- 
mitted ; then altogether covenanted. Prayed before and after." 

His name was Colesworthy, and is so written by his 
descendants. 

Oct. 15, 168S; "Speak to Gilbert Cole, to Bottle me a 
Barrel of Beer for the Sea." — Sewall. 

Samuel Sewall, eldest son of Henry and Jane 
(Dummer) Sewall ; born at Bishop-Stoke, Hants, 28 
March, 1652, and baptized, 4 May, in Stoke Church, by the 
Rev. Mr. Rashly, formerly a member of the First Church, 
Boston, and, later, one of the persecuted clergy under the 
Act of Uniformity. Samuel arrived in Boston 5 July, 
1 66 1, resided with his family at Newbury, and fitted for 
college there; grad. Harv. 1671, and took his M.A. 1674; 
married 28 Feb. 1675-6, Hannah (1688), daughter and 
heir of John Hull (1669). In 1684 he was chosen a 
magistrate of the colony ; in 1692 he was appointed by 
William and Mary a member of their first council for the 
Province ; in 1692, he was made one of the judges, and, in 



26o THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

1 71 8, chief justice, of the Superior Court, and he remained 
upon the bench until 1728, when he resigned on account 
of his growing infirmities. 

Judge Sewall was a member of the Special Court ap- 
pointed, in 1692, for the trial of the Salem witches. Of 
the ten judges, Peter Sergeant (1689) and Wait Winthrop 
(1689), as well as he, were members of the South Church. 1 
His penitence afterward, when his eyes were opened to 
see what a terrible mistake he had made, was thorough and 
abiding ; and the reading of his confession by Mr. Willard 
on a fast day, 14 Jan. 1697, he standing with bowed head be- 
fore the congregation, is one of the most grand and at the 
same time most affecting incidents of personal biography. 
It is, perhaps, approached by Samuel Johnson's self-im- 
posed penance in the market place of Uttoxeter, which, 
Hawthorne says, was " as beautiful and touching a passage 
as can be cited out of any human life." 

" Green forever the memory be 
Of the Judge of the old Theocracy, 
Whom even his errors glorified, 
Like a far-seen, sunlit mountain-side 
By the cloudy shadows which o'er it glide ! " 

Whi titer. 

Of Judge Sewall's affection for this church, of which 
he was a member for fifty-three years, these pages, en- 
riched by extracts from his Diary, say all that need or 
can be said. Of his general character, the following from 
an obituary notice, written perhaps by his minister, the 
Rev. Thomas Prince, is the best epitome that can be given: 

" He was universally and greatly reverenc'd, esteemed and 
beloved among us for his eminent Piety, Learning and Wis- 
dom ; his grave and venerable Aspect and Carriage ; his in- 
structive, affable and chearful Conversation ; his strict Integ- 

1 Robert Calef, the merchant, who wrote More Wonders of the Invisible World, 
1700, may have been a member of the South congregation. A person by that 
name subscribed to the baptismal covenant, 1703, and had children baptized, the 
last — " Robert, of Robert and Margaret Calf" — 3 March, 1716-17. 

The book referred to, " was directed with sharp satire against the belief in 
witchcraft, and especially against the credit and standing of the eminent men who 
had been deluded by it."

rity and regard to Justice ; his extraordinary tender and 
compassionate Heart ; his neglect of the World ; his abundant 
Liberality; his catholick and publick Spirit; his critical 
Acquaintance with the Holy Scriptures in their inspir'd 
Originals ; his Zeal for the purity of instituted Worship ; his 
constant, diligent and reverent Attendance on it, both in the 
Church and Family ; his Love for the Churches, People and 
Ministers, the civil and religious Interests of this Country ; his 
tender Concern for the aboriginal Natives ; and as the Crown 
of all, His Moderation, Peaceableness and Humility ; which 
being all united in the same Person, and in an high Degree 
and Station, rendered Him one of the most shining Lights 
and Honours of the Age and Land wherein He lived, and 
worthy of a very distinguished regard in the New English 
Histories." — News Letter. 

He died, I Jan. 1 729-30, in the 78th year of his age. 
His third wife, Mary (1693), widow of Robert Gibbs (1691), 
survived him. 

Susanna Everingden — Plimly, wife of Thomas 
Plimly. 

Hannah Henchman, dismissed to the North Church. 

Probably wife of Nathaniel, a son of Daniel Henchman 

(1669). 

Oct. 23, 1706; " After Diner I go and take the Acknow- 
ledgment of M r Nathan 1 Henchman and Aua his wife to a 
Deed to their Brother the schoolmaster : She was lying on 
the Bed sick of a Fever ; yet very sensible and set her hand 
to the Receipt." — Sewall. 

She died, 7 Jan. 1 707. 

Dorcas Andrews, wife of James Andrews, of Fal- 
mouth, who moved to Boston, and died there, 1704; they 
had a daughter, Dorcas, who married Ebenezer Davenport, 
of Dorchester ; she died, 24 Nov. 1723, and her husband, 
29 July, 1738. 

Elizabeth Morse, eldest daughter of John Morse 
(1669). She was born 22 Jan. 1660-1. In 1678, her

father made a will, in which he gave her to Mrs. Nathaniel 
Williams (1672), and one-sixth of his estate to improve 
for her. He died soon after. 

Mary Lindall — Ardell, wife of Lindall, and 

afterward of William Ardell, merchant, who removed from 
Boston to Portsmouth, and, in 1699, was made sheriff of 
the Province of New Hampshire. 

Oct. 23, 1711 ; "Mrs. Mary Ardel buried ; Bearers, Elisha 
Hutchinson, Sewall ; M r Oakes, Capt. Hill ; M r Baker."— 
Sewall. 

She was buried in the Granary burying ground, and 
her tombstone there gives her age as 72. She left an 
only daughter, Abiah, or Abiel Lindall, 1 who married 
Captain John Barrell, and had children. 

Elizabeth Poole, wife of John Poole, merchant of 
Boston, and daughter of William Brenton, Governor of 
Rhode Island. She was married, 28 March, 1672, and 
when she joined the church, she was baptized "at a 
church meeting at her house," a very uncommon favor, 
says Savage, if not unexampled before in our country. 
Their three children were publicly baptized in the meeting 
house a few days later. 

Jan. 19, 1 69 1-2 ; "Visited Mrs. Pool, who lies sick on 
bed, and has been there this Moneth ; gave her one of M r 
Willard's Cordials ; was very glad to see me. Speaking 
about Widow Hamlen [who had died very suddenly a few 
days before], she mention'd 1 Cor. 10. 31. Mrs. Elisa. Pool 
has buried rive sisters, Eliot, Gard [Card], Sanford, Brown, 
Burton. Sanford, Gard, have left no children." Oct. 19, 
1694; "Mrs. Pole buried. Bearers, M r Cook, Sewall, Al- 
dington, Oakes,. Byfield, Oliver. Was laid in the old burying 
place." Nov. 10, 171 1 ; "M'John Pole died, Nov r 7 th , Was 
buried this day." — Sewall. 

1 The two forms of this name are used interchangeably in one or two instances 
in the baptismal register, although, generally, Abiel is the male, and Abiah, the 
female, form of the name. 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 263 

Their daughter Jane (baptized 12 Nov. 1682) was the 
first wife of Timothy Lindall, of Salem and Boston, Harv. 
Coll. 1695, speaker, and of the council ; Judge of the Com- 
mon Pleas, etc. — Eds. Sewall. 

Sewall records the death, 9 Sept. 1690, of Mrs. Jane 
Poole, "a Mother in our Israel," whose name does not ap- 
pear on the church register. She is supposed to have 
been the widow of William Poole, of Dorchester. 



The Rev. Samuel Willard, second minister of the 
South Church. 

" One of the most eminent of the ministers that have adorned 
the New England pulpit. He was a native of the Colony, 
of honorable descent, and graduated at Harvard College 
in 1659. He was first settled in the ministry at Groton, where 
he continued about twelve years, when, that place being de- 
stroyed by the Indians, and his flock scattered, in 1676, he 
removed to Boston, and, on the 10th of April, 1678, was 
settled as colleague pastor of this [Old South] church. 
After the death of M r Thacher, in the following October, he 
continued sole pastor about two years, when an assistant was 
ordained. M r Willard was chosen Vice President of Harvard 
College in 1701 ; and from the death of President Mather in 
that year, discharged the duties of the presidency, with high 
reputation, till a little before his decease in 1707, still con- 
tinuing his ministerial labors in Boston. * * * In the 
strange proceedings in relation to witchcraft in 1692, though 
three of the judges who condemned the persons executed for 
that crime were members of his church, and to express doubts 
of the guilt of the accused, was to expose one's self to accu- 
sation and condemnation, he had the courage to express his 
decided disapprobation of the measures pursued, to use his 
influence to arrest them, and to aid some who were imprisoned 
awaiting their trial, to escape from the colony." — Wisner. 

Judge Sewall thus describes his last illness and death : 

1707; " 7 r 12. Mehetabel Thurston tells me M r Willard 
was taken very sick. I hop'd it might go off, and went to 
Diner ; when I came there, M r Pemberton was at Prayer, 
near concluding, a pretty many in the Chamber. After 
Prayer, many went out, I staid and sat down : and in a few

just about two hours from his being taken. It was very sur-

child last Lord's Day : Did it with suitable voice, Affection, 
Fluency. Did not preach : f 1 I th , went to Lecture and heard 
M r Pierpont. At even seem'd much better than had been 
lately. Tis thought cutting his finger might bring on this' 
tumultious passion that carried him away. There was a 
dolefull cry in the house. Feria Secunda, f 15 th , M r Willard

Mr. Pemberton and Mr. Colman preached funeral ser- 
mons, which are in the Prince Library ; which also con- 
tains a number of Mr. Willard's published sermons, and 
his celebrated lectures on divinity, "the largest [work] 
that was ever Printed Here, and the first of Divinity in a 
Folio Volume." See Preface by Joseph Sewall and 
Thomas Prince. 

Mr. Willard's first wife was Abigail Sherman ; his sec- 
ond, Eunice Tyng (1681). His eldest daughter, Abigail 
(baptismal covenant, 1680), married first, the Rev. 
Benjamin Estabrook, of Lexington, and then, the Rev. 
Samuel Treat, of Eastham, son of Robert Treat, and 
ancestor of Robert Treat Paine (1749). 



Rebecca Croakham — Harris, daughter of Abraham 
Jocelyn and his wife Beatrice, who afterward married 
Benjamin Bosworth. Rebecca married successively, 
John Croakham, Thomas Harris and Edward Stevens. 

Jan. ri, 1711-12; " Mrs. Beatrice Bosworth is buried, aged 
89. years. Her first husband's name was Joclin, by whom 
she had her daughter Stephens." — Sewall.

Katharine Franklin. 

" Benjamin Franklin of Boston, son of William, of the 
same, by wife Catharine had Joanna, born 12 July, 1672; 
Sarah, 2 Oct. 1674; Benjamin, 28 Jan. 1677." — Savage. 

The last two were baptized 7 April, 1678, one week 
after their mother joined the church. 

Constant Palfrey, wife of William Palfrey. 

Rebecca Nash. 

Judge Sewall speaks of her two or three times in con- 
nection with the will of Mrs. Mary Mighill, who died at 
her house. 

Rebecca Gilbert. 

" William Gilbert, Boston, cordwainer and merchant, 1675, 
had wife Rebecca, three sons, of whom William was one, 
who died soon after his father, also daughter Mary. He died 
January, 1693." — Savage. 

Susanna Carter, wife of Ralph Carter, Boston, 1676. 

Catharine Simpkins. Pilgrim Simpkins, Boston, mar- 
ried for his second wife, Catharine Richardson. His will 
of 19 Nov. 1714, proved 2 Jan. 1721, provides for his wife 
Catharine, who is made executrix, and divides his estate 
among his children. His first wife, Miriam, died, 1660, 
and left a daughter Miriam (1704), who married Thomas 
Tyler.

266 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

1679. 

Paul Dudley, youngest son of Governor Thomas 
Dudley, merchant; artill. co. 1677; collector of the cus- 
toms. He married Mary (1690), daughter of Governor 
Leverett, and died, 1681 ; a posthumous child, Paul, was 
baptized at the South Church, 30 April, 1682. His widow 
married Penn Townsend as his second wife. 

Dec. 1, 1681 ; "The well accomplished merchant and Ac- 
comptant, M r Paul Dudley, dyed, being little above 30 years 
old." — Sew all. 

John Walley, came to this country before his father, 
the Rev. Thomas Walley, of Barnstable. He was of the 
artill. co. 1671 ; freeman, 1673; one of the council named 
in the royal commission to Andros, and in that to Sir 
William Phips. Capt. of artill. co. 1679, 1699, 1707. He 
was a judge of the Superior Court, and Lieut. General of 
the forces in the expedition to Canada, 1690. We find 
constant reference to him in Judge Sewall's Diary ; and 
he is mentioned in the church records, as serving on im- 
portant committees. 

Dec. 22, 1 71 1 ; "I visit Major Walley, who is now in a 
mauer wholly confin'd to his chair." Jan. 7 ; " A considerable 
snow fell last night. I visit Major Walley.' Jan. 9; ki [ 
visit Major Walley, who is much worse, and seems to be 
hastening to his Long home. Desired of M r Wadsworth the 
continuance of his Prayers." Jan. n ; "Major John Walley 
dies. I was at prayer with him last night. M r Pemberton 
pray'd excellently. He was a good Neighbour, a publick 
spirited Man. a Purchaser and principal Settler of Bristol." 
Jan. 17; " Went to the Funeral of Major Walley; Bearers, 
Winthrop, Sewall ; Addington, Sergeant; Belchar, Mico. 
Tomb in the new Burying place." — Sewall. 

Mr. Pemberton's funeral sermon on Mr. Walley is pre- 
served in the Prince Library. The text was, " For David, 
after he had served his own generation by the will of God, 
fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers and saw cor- 
ruption." 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 267 

"It becomes the whole Land," said Mr. Pemberton, " to 
resent his Removal ; and this Church in particular : for God 
hereby has made a breach upon us, and taken away One of 
our Main, and most Antient Pillars. And if we do not resent 
and improve the hand of God ; we shall have Reason to fear 
least God Smite us with breach upon breach ; and remove 
more of those Antient and Honorable Senators, which are 
now no small part of our Strength and Glory. * * * He 
was blessed with an uncommon Sweetness and Candor of 
Spirit, which being improved and regulated by Grace, did 
dispose him to a ready observation of the Law of Kindness 
in his whole Conversation." 

His daughter, Elizabeth (171 1), married the Rev. Joseph 
Sewall, fourth minister of the South Church, and his 
grandson, Samuel Sewall (1749), was elected deacon in 
1763. Mr. Walley has had faithful representatives in the 
church in almost every generation since his death. 



1680. 

Simon Bradstreet, 
Anne Bradstreet. 

Simon Bradstreet, educated at Emanuel College, Cam- 
bridge, came to this country in the "Arbella," with 
Governor Winthrop; assistant, 1630, and during forty-eight 
years. In 1679 he was chosen Governor, and annually 
thereafter until 1686, when Joseph Dudley assumed the 
office of President under a commission from James II. 
After the deposition of Sir Edmund Andros by a revo- 
lution of the people, in April, 1689, Bradstreet was again 
chosen Governor, and served until May, 1692. He mar- 
ried first, Anne, daughter of Governor Thomas Dudley ; 
and secondly, Anne, daughter of Emanuel Downing, 
and widow of Joseph Gardner. Her sister, Mary Downing, 
married Anthony Stoddard, as his first wife. 

In 1663, Simon Bradstreet and Thomas Danforth were 
appointed to prepare "an epistle to the Indian Bible, 
dedicatory to His Majesty, and to cause the same to be 
printed." 



268 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

" The most venerable figure whom we now see is old Simon 
Bradstreet, full of years and of dignity. When Andros is 
overthrown in 1689, he will be placed at the head of the 
government, though weighed down with the snows of ninety 
years. We prize the few words in which the Labadist mis- 
sionaries describe him, 'an old man, quiet and grave, dressed 
in black silk, but not sumptuously.' Venerable, but not 
forcible, his memory was long cherished, largely because he 
had the happy fortune to linger the last survivor of a band 
of remarkable men. He seemed to concentrate in himself 
the dignity and wisdom of the first century of Massachusetts 
life."— Fooic. 

March 27, 1697 ; " About 10. at night Gov 1 " Bradstreet dyes ; 
which we are told of March, 29 th at Cambridge, where we 
were upon the account of Mrs. Danforth's Funeral." April 
2; "About 3 was the Funeral; Bearers, M r Danforth, 
Major Gen. Winthrop, M r Cook, Col. Hutchinson, Sewall, 
M r Secretary : Col. Gedney and Major Brown led the widow ; 
I bore the feet of the Corps into the Tomb, which is new, in 
the Old Burying place. M r Willard, Capt. Checkly, Capt. 
Hill, Capt. Williams, Cap' Belchar, &c. there. M r Bromfield, 
M r Eyre. Probably very many would have assisted had not 
the wether been discouraging. Three Volleys, but no Great 
Guns, by reason of the Scarcity of Powder. Came home com- 
fortably in the Sunshine ; which prov'd well ; for the next 
morning was a set Rain. Ministers at the Funeral, M r 
Willard, M r Shepard, M r Chiever, M r Higginson, Noyes, 
M r Hale, M r Gerrish, M r Hubbard of Ipswich, which are all 
I took notice of." — Sewall. 

Mrs. Bradstreet died in Salem, April, 171 3. 

William Gerrish, married, 1645, Joanna, widow of 
John Oliver. The Rev. Joseph Gerrish, of Wenham, was 
his son. 

Samuel Sendall, Boston, was first at Newbury ; in

in his will of 29 Sept. 1684, proved 8 Oct. next, described 
as "singular comfortable and good wife and yokefellow," 
had been provided for by the contract of marriage, yet he 
gave something to her and also to her daughter Abigail. 
— Savage.

Sibs about submitting to God's Providence." 

Mary Tappan (1674) was his second wife. 

The Rev. Deodat Lawson, son of the Rev. Thomas, of 
Denton, Norfolk, England. Is first heard of at Martha's 
Vineyard, 1676. Savage says, if he had become a member 
of the Second instead of the Third Church, when he came 
to Boston, Cotton Mather would have told more about 
him in his Magnalia. Freeman, 1680 ; preached for a 
time at Salem Village, now Danvers, where the people 
would have settled him, but he moved to Scituate, 
and became the third minister of the Second Church

there, to which he transferred his membership from the 
South Church. He was at Salem Village during the sad 
experiences there in connection with the witchcraft de- 
lusion, and preached a sermon, 24 March, 1692, entitled 
"Christ's Fidelity the only Shield against Satan's 
Malignity," which was printed, and is in the Prince Libra- 
ry. He died, after 1698. His first wife was Jane (1683) ;

ordained, 1674, at Maiden, where for a time he was a col- 
league of the Rev. Michael Wigglesworth.

" He gave up his pulpit 1678, removed next year to Saco, 
there was a magistrate, but he for some time preached at 
Scarborough. During the great French and Indian war, be- 
ing driven to Boston, he served, 1683, as representative for 
Saco, but continued to live at Boston. Their children, Benja- 
min and Rebecca, were baptized at the Old South." — Savage. 

Mrs. Blakeman died 21 March, 171 5, aged 63, and was 
buried at Copp's Hill. 



1681. 

Eunice Willard, daughter of Edward Tyng, and sec- 
ond wife of the Rev. Samuel Willard (1677), whom she 
married about 1679. Her sister, Hannah, married 
Habijah Savage (1708), and her sister Rebecca, Governor 
Joseph Dudley. 



16G2. 

Hannah Walker — Belcher, daughter of Deacon 

Theophilus Frary (1669) ; she married, first, Isaac Walker 

(1674), who died i638; and secondly, 13 Feb. 1689, the 

Hon. Andrew Belcher (1697), one of the committee of 

safety in the insurrection against Andros, and a member 

of the council, 1702-17. 

" At her second marriage, Mr. Belcher had four young 
daughters, who all married great connections, and a so:i 
Jonathan [(1706)], who graduated at Harvard College, 1699, 
and became royal governor of Massachusetts. She seems to 
have had no issue, but her influence in rearing the children of 
Mr. Belcher must have been efficient and happy. At her house 
during the momentous crisis of our first revolution, must have 
been secret consultations by leading patriots, like her father 
and husband, whose plans were not disclosed until ripened 
into action." — Morse. 

Prudence Morse. Christopher Morse, Boston, mari- 
ner, had a wife Prudence, and a daughter of the same 
name born 6 Feb. 1665. 



272 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

Joseph Brisco, son of Joseph, of Boston, and of his wife 
Abigail, daughter of John Compton. He was a neigh- 
bor and friend of Judge Sewall, who frequently mentions 
him in his Diary. He was a bearer at the funeral of 
Dame Walker, Dec. 1695, and at that of Mrs. Abigail 
Perry, Oct. 1718. Judge Sewall speaks of him as his 
son's tenant, and (1703) performed the marriage ceremony 
for one of his daughters. By his wife Rebecca (1682), 
he had Rebecca, Joseph, John and Sarah. 

Phcebe Brook — Manly, wife of William Manly (1689). 
Mary Pease, wife of Samuel Pease. 



1683. 

John Eyre, or Eyers, youngest son of Simon, of 

Watertown, surgeon, who came in the " Increase " from 

London, 1635. His mother was Martha, daughter of 

William Hubbard, and widow of John Whittingham, of 

Ipswich. He was born 19 Feb. 1654; artill. co. 1682; 

in the committee of safety, 1689; representative 1693 and 

1698. 

June 17, 1700 ; " M r John Eyre makes his Will in the morn- 
ing, and dies in the Afternoon, an hour or 2. before Sunset. 
Born Febr. 19 th 1653-4. I visited him on Satterday in the

by the hand at first coming in, Desired me to pray for him 
when took leave. Fourth-day, June 19, 1700; M r Jn° Eyre 
is entomed in the new burying place. Nine of his children 
are laid there to handsel the new Tomb : Bearers, Sewall, 
Addington, Townsend, Byfield, Dumer, Davis : Scarvs and 
Rings. U Gov r and many of the Council there. M r Thomas

buried; Bearers, W m Tailer esq r , Edward Bromfield esq r ; 
John Clark esq r , Elisha Cooke esq r ; M r Thomas Clark, 
William Harris esq'." — Sewall. 

Katharine Eyre — Winthrop, daughter of Thomas 
Brattle (1669), sister of Elizabeth Oliver (1683), and wife 
of John Eyre (1683). She told Judge Sewall in the winter 
of 1 71 7-1 8, that she was married to Mr. Eyre 20 May, 
1680 ; they lived together for twenty years and had twelve 
children, nearly all of whom died young. She married, 
secondly, Wait Still Winthrop (1689) as his second wife, and 
became a widow again, 7 Nov. 171 7. Judge Sewall would 
have married her for his third wife, had he received en- 
couragement from her, as appears from the very explicit 
entries in his Diary. Their relations, however, continued 
to be friendly ; and he gives an account of a visit which 
he made to her when she was on her death bed, ac- 
companied by his son, then the pastor of the South 
Church, who at Mrs. Winthrop's request offered prayer 
in her behalf. She died, 2 Aug. 1725. 

" Monday, Aug 1 2 ; Mrs. Katherine Winthrop, Relict of 
the hon bl ° Wait Winthrop esq r , died ^Etatis 61. She was 
born in September, 1664. The Escutcheons on the Hearse 
bore the Arms of Winthrop and Brattle, The Lion Sable.

of court, was turned out of his place as marshal, Feb. 
1685-6, "many complaints coming against him." 

Sarah Walker, wife of Samuel Walker. 

Deborah King, wife of William King.

274 THE 0LD SOUTH CHURCH. 

Jane Lawson, first wife of the Rev. Deodat Lawson 
(1680). In the register of baptisms, she is called Anne. 



1684- 

Jeremiah Bumstead, son of Thomas and Susanna 
Bumstead ; born in England ; died, 2j Feb. 1 709, aged 
72. By wife Sarah (1684), he had Jeremiah (1700), and 
Abigail (1701), who married John Lambert. 

During the century from 1684 to 1784, five members of 
this family bearing the name of Jeremiah Bumstead, 
joined the Old South. 

Roger J udd, freeman, 1690; had wife Elizabeth. He 
seems to have been employed in some dependent position 
by Judge Sewall, who frequently mentions his name. He is 
remembered now only because of his disorderly withdrawal 
from the South Church, and his going over to the Epis- 
copal order. Judge Sewall records, June 8, 1688, "in the 
Even, Capt. Hill and I discourse with Roger Judd and 
Mrs. Willey." What led to this interview we are not 
told ; but the first King's Chapel was built that year, and 
Judd's preferences may have already begun to show them- 
selves. Every effort would seem to have been made to 
convince him as to the duty which he owed to the church 
with which he had entered into solemn fellowship, and in 
which his children had been baptized, but to no effect. 
At length, Jan. 22, 1698-9, he was put out of the church 
"for his contumacy in refusing to hear the Church and 
his contemptuous behaviour against the same and Mr. 
Willard the Pastor." His apology to Judge Sewall was, 
that he had come into the church by the importunity of 
Deacon Eliot and others, and that now " twas his con- 
science to go to the Church of England." Mr. Willard 
presented a very full report upon the case to the church, 
in which he said : 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 275 

" The matter of offence is not his going off from this 
church ; for we acknowledge there is a lawfulness to do so, 
provided it was orderly ; but y e manner of it. I know none 
of any persuasion, but who reckon y l there is a discipline ap- 
pointed by Christ in his churches; and a person who is 
orderly become a member of our church is lyable to be pro- 
ceeded with in way of discipline in y* church till he orderly 
removes his immediate relation to another." 

In 1 70 1, Judd became the sexton of King's Chapel. 

Anne Cooke, wife of a Robert Cooke, according to the 
baptismal register, in which we find, also, Robert and 
Sarah (1671) Cooke. 

Alexander Bulman, is mentioned in the Memorial 
History of Boston, in a list of Boston bakers, 1696, and 
his autograph is giveh. 

James Oliver, son of Peter Oliver, merchant (1669). 
Harv. Coll. 1680; married Mercy, daughter of Samuel 
Bradstreet. Dismissed to the church in Cambridge, 
where he practised as a physician. Freeman, 1690. He 
died, 8 April, 1703 ; his widow died, 29 March, 1710, in 
her 43rd year. 

The Rev. William Brattle, son of Thomas Brattle 
(1669), by his wife Elizabeth (Tyng) (1672). Born 22 
Nov. 1662. Harv. Coll. i68o;F.R.S. " The learned and 
pious minister of First Church, Cambridge." He was or- 
dained 25 Nov. 1696, when he took his dismission from 
the South Church. He married, 3 Nov. 1697, Elizabeth 
daughter of Nathaniel Hayman, of Charlestown, and 
had an only child, William, Harv. Coll. 1722. He died 
two days after the Rev. Ebenezer Pemberton (1692). 

Feb. 15, 1 715-6 ; " The Rev d M r William Brattle died last 
night at midnight. He was a Father to the Students of Har- 
vard College, and a Physician, My Fast Friend. I wish it be 
not portentous that Two such great Men should fall in one 
Week ! Deus avertat Omen." — Sewall. 



276 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

Mr. Colman, in his funeral sermon on the two deceased 
clergymen, preached at the Thursday lecture of the fol- 
lowing week, notes that they were life-long friends, Brattle 
having been Pemberton's tutor. — Eds. Sewall. 

Mary Dafforne, wife of John Dafforne. 

" Perhaps he had been driven away from some frontier set- 
tlement in the Indian war and went back. Yet in the great 
fire of 1760, one of the sufferers was Isaac Dafforne, perhaps 
a grandson of John." — Savage. 

Mrs. Dafforne herself seems to have been in danger in 
another fire, — that of 1724. Judge Sewall writes on the 
nth of August in that year : 

" This day I view the desolation by Fire, visited Mrs. 
Dafforn, who was carried out of her house to M r Dan 1 Oliver's 
for fear of the Fire." March 26, 1728 \ " Mrs. Mary Dafforne 
laid in her Grave in the old Burying Place, y£t 9 78. Bearers, 
Sewall, Byfield ; Oliver, Capt. Ephraim Savage; Capt. Bal- 
lentine, Deacon Marshall. It seems Mr. Moffat, who married 
the only daughter, belongs to the old Church ; and the Bearers 
were equally divided. .She was of my Father Hull's privat 
Meeting, I hope a good Woman ; much Confin'd. I am 
griev'd I visited her no more, though hindered by my own 
Sickness and indisposition." — Sewall. 

Elizabeth Tucker. 

Judge Sewall mentions the sudden death, 29 March, 
1707, of a Mrs. Tucker, sister of Mrs. Lothrop. 

Patience Harker. 

" Ebenezer Harker of Nantucket, married Patience, daugh- 
ter of Peter Folger, but whether he had issue I know not. 
His widow married James Gardner." — Savage. 



1685. 

Abigail Eliot — Davis, daughter of Deacon Jacob 
(1669) and Mary (1674) Eliot, and wife of William Davis. 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 2/7 

Her daughter Abigail (171 3) married Henry Lowder. 
William Davis was probably a son of William, one of the 
founders of the church. 

Feb. 25, 1706-7 ; " After that, I visit the widow Eliott, who 
dwells with her daughter Davis." — Setvall. 



Ruth Edwards — Cunningham, wife of George Ed- 
wards, and afterward of Timothy Cunningham. 

In the register of baptisms we find, George, of George 
and Ruth Edwards, 1685 ; and Ruth, Hannah and 
Nathaniel, of Timothy and Ruth Cunningham, in 16S9 
and later. The baptism of another son, Timothy, we do 
not find recorded ; but we have evidence of his interest 
in our church, in the bequest of two hundred pounds made 
by him to it. By the desire of his mother, Mrs. Ruth 
Cunningham, his elder and only brother, Nathaniel, be- 
came the executor of his will ; to him, says the record, 
"the Committee of this Church have made application for 
the said Legacy, and which he offered to pay, at the same 
time signifying his desire that the money should be in- 
vested in a Bell for the new House now going to be built." 
A bell was accordingly ordered, and the following inscrip- 
tion was cast upon it : " The Gift of Capt. Timothy Cun- 
ningham to the South Church in Boston ; who died at 
Sea, Sept r 12, 1728." It was cracked while ringing for a 
fire during a tempest, 23 Sept. 181 5 ; and a new one, "as 
near the size and sound of y e old bell as possible," was 
obtained from London, by a committee of the Old South 
duly authorized, consisting of Joseph Pierce, Edward 
Phillips and Josiah Salisbury. It was put up in 1817 ; 
and when the church took possession of its new meeting- 
house on the corner of Boylston and Dartmouth Streets, 
in 1875, it was transferred to the campanile in which it 
now hangs. It weighs fifteen hundred pounds, and bears 
the names of the committee. 



278 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

If the register of membership were complete, it might 
appear that both Timothy and Nathaniel Cunningham 
were members of the South Church, which they both 
loved. The latter, a man of large wealth, died in London, 
7 Sept. 1748, and left to it by his will, sixty ounces of 
silver, to be made into some proper vessel for the com- 
munion table, and ^500 for its poor. His son, Nathaniel, 
married Sarah, daughter of Christopher Kilby ; and his 
daughter, Ruth (1764), married James Otis (bapt. cov. 
1 756), the orator and patriot. Nathaniel and Sarah (Kilby) 
Cunningham had two daughters, Susannah and Sarah, and 
the younger of these had a daughter Elizabeth, who mar- 
ried the seventh Duke of Argyll. 



Benjamin Davis, son of William (1669), by his wife 
Martha (Pynchon). Boston, 1670; merchant ; major 
artill. co. 1673 ; freeman, 1690. He married Sarah, 
daughter of James Richards, of Hartford. 

Aug. 14, 16S5; "At night M r Willard, Eliot Jacob, Rob* 
Walker, Frary, Nath. Oliver, Benj. Davis meet here to dis- 
course. Because the two last named desire to come into the 
Church without making any Relation at all ; or having M r 
Willard report the Substance of what they said to him." Sept. 
13 ; "Mr. Benj. Davis, Nath 1 Oliver, Sam 1 Checkly and his 
wife are received into the Church which is a Sabbath or 2 
sooner than I expected : The Lord's Super not being to be 
administered till Oct 1 4 th . Sam 1 Checkly had most in's 
Relation ; two wear Perriwigs : viz : Davis, Checkly." — 
Sewall. 

Mr. Davis was one of the founders and earliest deacons 
of Brattle St. Church ; and it is worthy of notice in con- 
nection with what Sewall here records, that in the or- 
ganization of that church it was determined, among other 
matters, "to lay aside the relation of experiences which 
are imposed in other churches, in order to the admission 
of persons to the Lord's table." 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 279 

Nov. 26,, 1704; "Major Davis dies of a Flux about 6. in 
the evening after the Sabbath. I knew not that was sick till 
about 24 hours before." Nov. 30; "Major Davis buried; 
Bearers, Elisha Hutchinson esq', Sewall, Addington, Foster, 
Jeffries, Joseph Parson." — Sewall. 

Nathaniel Oliver, son of Peter (1669). Was one of 
the committee of safety after the overthrow of Andros, 
1689; freeman, 1690, with prefix of respect; among the 
earliest members of Brattle St. Church; died, 15 April, 
1704. His wife was Elizabeth (1683), daughter of Thomas 
Brattle (1669), whom he married 3 Jan. 1677, and who 
survived him. 

April 15, 1704 ; " M r Nathan 1 Oliver dieth between 3 and 4 
in the morning. He was born 20 days before me." April 
18; "Went to the Funeral of M r Nathan 1 Oliver : Bearers, 

Sewall, VValley ; Legg, Dumer ; Cooper, Gov r was 

there." — Sewall. 

Samuel Checkley, born at Preston, Northamptonshire, 
England, 14 Oct. 1653 ; arrived in Boston, 3 Aug. 1670. 
During his long life, he filled various places of honor and 
trust. He received twelve different commissions in the 
Boston regiment, from that of ensign given by Governor 
Bradstreet, to a colonelcy by Lieut-Governor Tailer. Se- 
lectman ; representative ; justice of the peace ; county 
treasurer ; town clerk. " In all which Places He behav'd 
Himself with such Prudence, Meekness and Fidelity as to 
gain the general Esteem and Love of all acquainted with 
Him." 

In the Boston News Letter (4 Jan. 1739), which an- 
nounces his death, he is said to have been chosen a deacon 
in the South Church, 15 Oct. 1693. This is correct, but 
it is also true that he then refused the office, and that James 
Hill was chosen, 24 Nov. 1693, in his stead. There is 
nothing in the church records to show that he was chosen 
a second time, or that he ever accepted the position ; but 
the following passages in Sewall's Diary, in connection 



280 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

with the obituary notice just mentioned, leave no doubt 
as to his having served the church for many years in this 
office. 

Lord's Day, Aug. 20, 1710; "M r Joseph Sewall preaches 
for M r Pemberton, from Ps. 73. 28. But it is good for me to 
draw near unto God : stood a little above an hour. Before 
we went out of the seat, Maj r Gen 1 congratulated me on account 
of my Son; said he had done Pie et Docte. In the Afternoon, 
Mr Pemberton traced much of his Discourse in his Prayer." 
Aug. 21; " The Deacons come and deliver him 20 8 . Col. 
Checkley very cheerfully congratulated me on account of my 
Son's very good Sermon. Capt. Hill congratulated me, 
coming in first." 

July 5, 1 714; " I went to M r Pemberton, found M'Comisary 
[Belcher] and M r Bromfield there. They began to speak to 
me about Deacons, some of ours very old and infirm. M r 
Pemberton spake how much Col. Checkley was broken; 
which I had not observ'd. Mention'd the expediency of 
adding to their number. Nam'd M r Daniel Oliver : I said I 
should like him very well if he would Accept. Then nam'd 
M r Sam. Phillips: I said nothing." 

Lord's Day, Dec. 6, 1724; "Lord's Super. M r Prince's 
Text, Cant. 2. 14. * * My Son and Deacon Green were kept 
at home by the Great Rain and Indisposition. Deacon Check- 
ly Deliver' d the Cup first to Madam Winthrop, and then gave 
me a Tankard. 'Twas humiliation to me and I think put me 
to the Blush, to have this injustice done me by a Justice." 

Mr. Checkley married Mary, daughter of Joshua 

Scottow (1669) ; they had eleven children, only two of 

whom survived their parents, — Deacon Richard Checkley 

and the Rev. Samuel Checkley (Harv. Coll. 171 5), first 

minister of the New South Church, Boston. The mother 

died in 1721 ; the father, 27 Dec. 1738, in his 86th year. 

" His greatest Honour, and for which his memory is Blessed, 
was his eminent, unaffected and vital Piety." — News Letter. 

Mary Checkley, wife of the foregoing, and daughter 
of Joshua Scottow, one of the founders of the church. 
Her sister Lydia (1671), was the second wife of Anthony 
Checkley, Samuel's brother.

Church, and one of its earliest deacons. 

Mary Clark — Coney. 

Mary, daughter of Joshua Atwater, married first, Cap-

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 289 

There is an historic connection between the South 
Church and Mr. Sergeant's mansion, as will be seen from 
the following entry in Sewall's Diary :

Rawson, Capt. Joshua Scottow, Deacon Jacob Eliot, Deacon 
Theophilus Frary and Samuel Sewall met together at said

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 29 1 

of the Hon. Andrew Belcher (1697). Freeman, 1690; 
deputy and justice. 

Judge Sewall's third wife, Mary (1693), widow of Robert 
Gibbs, was a granddaughter of Peter Oliver (1669), and 
consequently a niece of Daniel ; and the Judge, who placed 
a high estimate on all family ties, whether lineal or 
marital, speaks in his later journals of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel 
Oliver as uncle and aunt. 

Mr. Oliver took an active interest in the South Church. 
In 1725, he and Edward Bromfield (1698) were chosen 
trustees, with the deacons, of " the evangelical fund." 
When it had been determined by the brethren, 1728, by a 
vote of forty-one to twenty, to build a new meeting house, 
he was a member of the committee " to survey the land be- 
longing to this church, to consider of the most convenient 
place to set the House upon, to draw a Projection of the 
Building, and compute the cost." He was chosen treasurer 
of the building committee, but declined to serve. He was 
also on the committee with Colonel Fitch (1691), Mr. 
Secretary Willard (1701) and others, to provide a tempo- 
rary place of worship for the church and congregation ; 
the " Old Brick " was hospitably opened to them by the 
First Church, and was occupied by the two congregations 
jointly for nearly two years. 

Mr. Oliver had a son, Daniel, baptized by Mr. Pem- 
berton, 16 Jan. 1703-4, Harv. Coll. 1722, M.A. 1725, who 
died of small pox in London, 5 July, 1727, "as he was 
finishing his travels and returning to his friends and 
country." He was a young man of much promise ; and 
Mr. Prince preached and published a discourse after his 
death entitled, "Young Abel dead yet speaketh." Mr. 
Prince also preached funeral sermons on both the parents, 
on the honored father (at the public lecture), who died 23 
July, 1732, aged 69, and on the mother, in 1735. 



292 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH.

connection with repairs on and additions to his house.

had a grant of land in Bernardston in 1736, for his father's 

military services. 

March 19, 1699-1700; " Three young men, viz: — Robert 
Cunable, W m Salter, Tho. Comer, went in a Canoo a Guiling

Two of these youths belonged to South Church families.

company, 1675 ; perhaps removed to Boston, and was

which Judge Sewall took such a deep interest. 

Dec. 17, 171 7 ; "At the privat Meeting at Bro T Manly's I 
was so hoarse with my Cold, that I got Bro r Franklin to set 
the Tune, which he did very well." Feb. 3, 1719-30 ; " Great 
Rain. Meeting is at Brother Manly's, Only M r Franklin and 
I were there ; Mrs. Frost and her Relations made more Women 
than Men, which made me mention the Assembly of Women 
where Lydia was." Oct. 12, 1720; "Goto the Meeting at 
the Wido Emon's : M r Manly pray'd. I read half Mr. Henry's 
12 th Chapter of the L. Supper. * * * Bro r Franklin con-

twenty pounds to the poor of the church.

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 295 

Mary Alford, daughter of James Richards, of Hart- 
ford, and wife of Benjamin Alford, merchant. "He had

of importance in Boston." His eldest son, John, who had 
a good estate, was of Charlestown, married, 12 Nov. 
1713, Margaret, daughter of Col. Thomas Savage, third of 
that name, and died, 30 Sept. 1761. He founded the Alford 
Professorship at Harvard College, and gave large sums to 
the Society for Propagating the Gospel among the Indians. 
— Savage. Benjamin Alford and Benjamin Davis (1685) 
were brothers-in-law, and the latter was an executor of 
the former. 

Martha Raper. Thomas Raper, Boston, had wife 
Martha. 

Samuel Clark ; a neighbor of Judge Sewall, by whom 
he is frequently mentioned. His widow Hannah died, 
Feb. 1716-17.

tabel, daughter of Jacob Sheaf. "Went after 1685 to 
Newcastle, N. H., and in that Province was collector of 
the customs and secretary, and Judge of Supreme Court, 
but came back to Boston, and died 1724." — Savage. This 
last date is incorrect, as Judge Sewall writes that he 
visited him in his sick room 6 Dec. 1725. 

Simeon Stoddard, son of Anthony; freeman, 1670; 
councillor ; an intimate friend of Judge Sewall. His first 
wife, Mary (1686), died in 1708. In 1709, he married 
Elizabeth, widow of Col. Samuel Shrimpton ; she died 17 
April, 1 71 3, after long languishing, says Judge Sewall. 



296 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

His third wife was Mehetabel Minot (1697), who had 
previously been the wife of Thomas Cooper and Peter 
Sergeant (1689). He took an active interest in the affairs 
of the South Church. He was on the committee to sell 
the land left by Richard Taylor in 1699, and on the com- 
mittee to build a parsonage in 1705. He died in 1730; 
and the funeral sermon preached by the Rev. Benjamin 
Colman, entitled Dying in Peace in a Good Old Age, is 
in the Prince Library. 

There was an Anthony Stoddard who was very promi- 
nent in the affairs of the church from 1721 to 1746, but 
whose name does not appear on the list of admissions. 
He was a son of Simeon, born 24 Sept. 1678 ; Harv. Coll. 
1697; married Martha (1706), daughter of the Hon. 
Andrew Belcher (1697). He served for several years on 
the auditing committees, and he seems to have been in- 
terested no less in the spiritual than in the temporal wel- 
fare of the church. The last committee on which he

who became the third wife of Judge Sewall. 

Dec. S, 1 702 ; " M r Rob 1 Gibbs dies, one of our Select men, 
a very good man and much Lamented ; died suddenly of the

church and congregation. The Lord vouchsafe to dwell with 
us, and Not break up Housekeeping among us." Dec. 9 ; " M r

and he resided there for many years as standing agent of 
the Province. In 1757, he came to Boston with the Earl 
of Loudoun, and a dinner was given to him in Concert 
Hall. In recognition of his money subscriptions and other 
manifestations of interest after the fire of 1760, Mackerel

cessful ministry of seventeen years, died, 13 Feb. 171 7. 

" He was a man of eminent talents and great acquirements, 
and had the reputation of as accomplished a preacher as this 
country ever produced * * * He was master of logic and 
oratory in great perfection. The college never had a more 
accomplished tutor, nor one that more applied himself to teach 
and watch over the morals of it. His piety was of a decided 
character, producing, habitually, strong conviction of the 
reality of things invisible and eternal, and ' a zeal which 
flamed' in his master's cause. His temperament was uncom- 
monly ardent ; which, when properly regulated, gave to his 
performances a peculiar energy and power ; but which some- 
times proved a great infirmity, — his passions, when suddenly 
excited, becoming impetuous and violent * * * Through 
life, M r Pemberton was a diligent student and a laborious 
minister. His constitution was always feeble, and during 
several of his last years, he was greatly afflicted with severe 
bodily pain ; but under weakness and suffering, he continued 
to do much in his appropriate and loved employment. He 
preached his last sermon on the 20th of January, 1 716-7, from

Mr. Pemberton married Mary (1701), daughter of Capt. 
John Clark and his wife Mary (Atwater) (1686), afterward 
Mrs. Coney. His son, the Rev. Ebenezer (1725), was, 
during the latter part of his life, minister of the Second 
Church, Boston.

mon, spoke of him as "being born of pious parents (Aug. 
2 S> I( ^75), his father a deacon of this Church, and mother 
a sister of the late Honorable Daniel Oliver, Esq." He 
added : 

"At fourteen years of age (July, 16S9), he entered the 
School of the Prophets. He was ordained an Evangelist in 
the College Hall, for one of the West India Islands (169S), 
but the climate not agreeing with his constitution he soon 
returned to this his native city." From being a private 
teacher, he went into the " Public and Free Grammar School 
of this great town (1703), the principal school of the British 
Colonies, if not of all America. In this school he continued 
about thirty years. He also studied and practised physic." 

He was on the committee, in 171 7, to inform the Rev. 
Thomas Prince of his election to the pastorate, and he 
seems to have occasionally supplied the pulpit of the

lived, with cheerfulness, leaving a numerous posterity the 
honour of being descended from a person, who thro' a long 
life supported the character of an honest man." — News Letter.

was charged with having supplied stores and ammunition 
to the French in Canada; Governor Dudley was also

Elizabeth Jackson, may have been daughter of John 
Jackson, house-wright. 

Jane Tappan, daughter of Jacob and Hannah (Sewall) 
Tappan, and niece of Judge Sewall, in whose family she 
lived for many years. In one of the prayers recorded in 
his Diary, he says : " Requite the Labor of Love of my 
Kinswoman, Jane Tappin, Give her health, find out Rest 
for her." In a letter to the Rev. Edward Taylor, he men- 
tions that Mr. Bartholomew Green is likely to marry 
Mrs. Jane Tapp[an], 30 Nov. [1709] ; and in the Diary, 
August, 1 710, and later, she is spoken of as cousin Jane 
Green. Her husband was elected deacon, 17 19; after 
his death, 1732, the church voted some money (27 March, 
1734) to Mrs. Jane Green, wife of Bartholomew Green, 
late deacon, on account of loss by fire. 

Andrew Belcher, son of Andrew, the emigrant ; of 
Cambridge, Hartford and Boston ; one of the committee 
of safety at the time of the insurrection against Andros,

man of integrity and honour, a friend to religion and learning." 

— Eliot. 

His first wife was Sarah, daughter of Jonathan Gilbert, 
marshal of the colony of Connecticut ; his second was 
Hannah (1682), widow of Isaac Walker (1674), and daugh-

312 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

Many years after (7 July, 1748), this same son, Jonathan 
(1706), then Governor of New Jersey, wrote thus of his 
father to the Rev. Thomas Prince : 

"My Father was as great a Genius as his Country could 
boast of, but wanted an Education to Improve and polish it. 
Governor Dudley (who was a good Judge) used to say that 
M r Comissary Belcher would make a good Minister of State 
to any Prince in Europe, Especially in the Article of Finance. 
His late Farewell and Blessing of me show'd his strong 
thoughts and great modesty. Its fresh in my Memory and 
will be till the Frost of Age seals up that Faculty ; he called 
me to his Bedside, took me by the hand and said — Son you 
may expect me to bless you in a better manner and style than 
I am able to do, for God did not put it into your Grandfather's 
power to give me the Education he Inabled me to give you, 
but remember my Last Words to you are — May the Blessing 
of the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God 
of Jacob rest upon you and your seed for Ever. Atnen. 
Farewell. Neither the Patriarchs nor Apostles could have 
done it better." 

Mr. Belcher left a legacy of ^500 for the uses of the 
South Church. 



Silence Eliot, daughter of John Baker, and wife of 
Joseph Eliot, son of Deacon Jacob (1669), and grand- 
nephew of the Rev. John Eliot.

1698. 

Benjamin Emmons, son of Benjamin and Mary (1674). 
He took dismission to " the Old Church," — the First — of 
which, when his wife died in 1740, it was said she had 
been a member for forty years. She was Mary, daughter 
of Captain Simon Amory; he, "a worthy gentleman, 
member of the First Church." 

Susanna Bailey — Thacher, daughter of Richard Wil- 
kins, wife and widow of the Rev. John Bailey, and then 
second wife of the Rev. Peter Thacher (1673), of Milton. 
She married Mr. Thacher, 25 Dec. 1699, and died, 4 
Sept. 1724, aged 59. 

Elizabeth Davis. Perhaps this should read Elizabeth 
Lavis, wife of William (1693). 

Edward Bromfield, born at Haywood House, Hants, 
England, bred a merchant in London, went to Jamaica, 
came to Boston, 1675. For many years was a member 
of the council. The late Bromfield House marked the site 
of his mansion. He was a trustee of the " Evangelical 
Treasury " of the church ; " a gentleman of great integrity 
and singular piety." He died, 2 June, 1734, aged 85. 
His first wife was Elizabeth, daughter of James Brading ; 
she had only Elizabeth (1700), who died unmarried, 171 8. 
His second wife (4 June, 1683) was Mary (Danforth) 
(1696), granddaughter of the Rev. John Wilson of the 
First Church. Their son, Edward Bromfield (1729). wa s 
also a very useful member of the South Church. Their 
grandson, Edward Bromfield (1741), Harv. Coll. 1742, died 
in 1746 ; of this young man it has been said : 

" He lived long enough to develop a character and to ex- 
hibit tastes and talents which have embalmed his name in the 
memory of succeeding generations, and he might have achiev- 
ed great distinction in science if his life had been spared." — 
Lovering.

There is a portrait of him, after John Smibert (1730), 
in the possession of the Bostdnian Society. 

Francis Burroughs. 

Dec. 10, 1 713 ; "M r Francis Burroughs buried after Lecture. 
Bearers, M r Winthrop, Townsend ; Belcher, Bromfield ; 
Checkley, Ballantine. He is Lamented as having been an 
intelligent Exemplary Christian. Buried in M r Heath's Tomb, 
New burying place." — Seivall. 

This was the merchant from London, whom John 
Dunton found here, and who furnished the necessary 
security that Dunton should not " be chargeable to the 
town." He married here, as his second wife, 29 Dec. 

1709, Elizabeth (Gross), widow of Heath. His 

daughter, Sarah, married Captain John Brown, of Salem. 
— Eds. Sewall. 

John Campbell. 

" The Boston News-Letter ; the first anglo-American news- 
paper, appeared on Monday, April 24, 1704, and continued 
to be published until 1776, on the evacuation of Boston by the 
British troops. Its first publisher and proprietor was John 
Campbell, a bookseller, and also postmaster, in which last 
office he continued till his death in 1728. Nicholas Boone was 
associate publisher. Bartholomew Green, John Allen, and 
again Green, were successively its printers." — Eds. Sewall. 

" Campbell was not a brilliant genius. He wrote little, 
and that awkwardly and with effort. His patrons were few 
and sparing, and he wrestled with them continually on account 
of their delinquencies. The London newspapers were then 
in the early summer of their prosperity, and the News Letter 
was largely dependent on them, though it copied little of their 
enterprise or spirit." — Goddard. 

Mr. Campbell's daughter, Sarah, married James Bow- 
doin, and died in 171 3, in her 26th year; the father died, 
4 March, 1728, aged 75. 

Elizabeth Goose.

who married Thomas Fleet, the printer. 



1700. 

John Adams ; this is probably the man of whose death 
in Nov. 1702, Judge Sewall twice speaks. Nov. 2 ; " John 
Adams, a very good man," dies of the small pox. Dec. 
8 ; " His death [that of Mr. Robert Gibbs (1691)], and the 
death of Jn° Adams, the Master, Isaac Loring, and Pey- 
body, is a great stroke to our church and congregation." 

John Poole, son of William ; merchant ; married 
Elizabeth (1677), daughter of Governor Brenton. 

Nov. 10, 171 1 ; "M r John Pole died Nov 1 7 th , Was buried 
this day in a Tomb in the old Burying place. Bearers, Win- 
throp, Sewall ; Addington, Corwin ; Walley, Higginson.

Bumstead (1684) ; born 14 Oct. 1678. He married, 1704, 
Elizabeth Bridges; 1726, Bethia Sherrar ; 1729, Sarah 
Howard ; but we do not find any one of these names in 
the roll of membership. His daughter, Elizabeth, wife 
of John Bulfinch, joined the church 1727, and his son, 
Jeremiah, 1730. He kept a diary for the years 1722-27, 
which the late Mr. S. F. Haven edited, and which was

printed in the New Eng. Hist, and Gen. Register of 1 862, 

with the following introduction : 

" The writer seems to have been a mechanic in moderate 
circumstances, but blessed with numerous and very respect- 
able ' Cuzens.' He was a staunch and active member of the 
Old South Church, — attending all the extra services, and faith- 
fully noting the name of the preacher and the text of his 
discourse. He appears not to have been ambitious of office, 
and when chosen tything-man, or constable, obtained his re- 
lease on the plea of ' having no hand except his own,' or by 
paying the fine. 

John Adams, 

Hannah Adams. 

Brought letters from the church in Braintree. John 
Adams, merchant, son of Joseph of Braintree, married 
Hannah, daughter of Christopher Webb ; and secondly, 
Hannah, daughter of Anthony Checkley. It was the 
latter who became a member of the South Church. By 
his first wife, John Adams had Hannah (1707), John, and 
Samuel (1706), father of Samuel (1789), the patriot. He 
was grand-uncle of John Adams, the second President of 
the United States. 

Elizabeth Savage, probably Elizabeth, daughter of 

Francis Norton, of Charlestown, who married, first, 

Timothy Symmes ; and secondly, Ephxaim Savage (1672), 

as his third wife. 

April 13, 1710 ; " Capt. Ephraim Savage's wife dyes, about 
an hour after Lecture, to our great Surprise. She was at our 
Meeting at Capt. Hill's." April 16; ""About Sunset Mrs. 
Elizabeth Savage is buried. Bearers, Winthrop, Sewall ;

wich on his way to Natick, the Judge says : "Bespeak a 
Lodging for him at Matthias Smith's : but after they sent 
me word they could not doe it. So I was fain to lodg him 
in my Study." See an interesting foot-note in the third 
volume of the Diary, pp. 212, 213. 



1701. 

Josiah Willard, son of the Rev. Samuel Willard 
(1677), by his second wife, Eunice (Tyng) (168 1). Bap- 
tized 29 May, 1 68 1 ; Harv. Coll. 1698. After graduation, 
he became a tutor at the college, pursued study in divinity 
and began to preach, but in consequence of an uncon- 
querable diffidence he soon relinquished the ministerial 
profession. He travelled abroad, and is said to have 
commanded a vessel at one time in the London trade. 
He was twice taken by privateers in West India waters, 
and was imprisoned at Martinique. After his return 
home, he became secretary of the Province, and held this 
position for forty years. His first wife was Catharine 
Allen (171 1), who died in 1725, "much lamented"; his 
second, Hannah, widow of William Clark (1704). He 
died, 6 Dec. 1756; and the funeral sermons preached by 
his pastors, Dr. Sewall and Mr. Prince, show the estimate 
in which he was held both in state and church. After re- 
ferring to his long service as secretary, as a member of 
the council, and as Judge of Probate, Dr. Sewall said : 

" He discharged the Duties of these important offices with 
a laudable Capacity, great Diligence and Integrity, as a good 
and faithful Servant of God, his King and Country ; " and he 
added : "This Flock of Christ, of which his excellent Father 
was an able and faithful Pastor, is bereaved of an exemplary 
and faithful Christian, who walk'd humbly and closely with 
God, in a firm Adherance to the Doctrines and Precepts of the 
Gospel : One that was zealous for the Day and House of the 
Lord, and constant in his Attendance on the public Worship, 
even when his bodily Infirmities might urge him to spare 
himself." 



318 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

Mr. Prince, in a sermon on the Character of Caleb, said : 

" His Father was a Reverend, pious and learned Pastor of 
this Church for near Thirty Years, and as highly esteemed 
and beloved both in the Town and Land for his eminent Grace 
Wisdom Goodness and Usefulness, I suppose, as any in his 
Day. His Grandfather was one of the religious and courage- 
ous Councellors of the ancient Massachusetts Colony. Nor 
may I forget his Mother, because she was a Gentlewoman of 
Piety, help'd to form his Youth for Public Service ; and liv'd 
to see him to her great Joy answering all her Cares, advanced 
to his Place of Publick Honour, and to receive from him the 
grateful Returns of his most tender and filial Affection to- 
wards her. She was also a Daughter of another of our re- 
ligious Councellors. And if all these had not been noted in 
their Day for Piety ; I should not have mentioned them. But 
the Memory of the Just is Blessed." 

Nathaniel Shannon. 

Sept. 5, 1723 ; " On Tuesday Morning, the 27th of August, 
Died here (after a long and languishing Illness) Nathaniel 
Shannon, Esq. Aged 68 Years, who upwards of 22 Years, 
faithfully discharged the Duty of Naval-Officer in this Port ; 
and was decently Inter'd on the 28th." — News Letter.

Simeon Stoddard, son of Simeon (1691), by his wife 
Mary (1686) ; baptized 22 Oct. 1682. The following ser-

Sept. 27, 1706, on a Solemn Occasion; for the Consolation 
of a Sorrowful Family, mourning over the Immature Death 
of a Pious Son, viz, M r Simeon Stoddard, who was found

Thomas, the emigrant, and nephew of Thomas (1669). 
He was a shopkeeper, and married Mehetabel Harwood. 
He was a member of the artill. co., and when Judge

sign, Thomas Fitch (1691), first sergeant, Oliver Noyes 
(1693), second sergeant, Habijah Savage (1708), third 
sergeant, and Charles Chauncy (1708), fourth sergeant. 
The Rev. Mr. Pemberton preached the sermon that year, 
so that altogether it was a South Church occasion. 
Among other pleasantries uttered by Judge Sewall, in his 
speech of thanks, was this, that "the savages were 
souldiers ex Traduce." 

March 8, 1 720-1 ; "L'Col. Thomas Savage was entombed. 
The Regiment were under Arms ; was a Led-Horse. Bearers,

from England with her brother, Elisha Story (1705), two 
years before. She had fifteen children, and died in 1759, 
nine years after her husband. 



1704, 

Arthur Mason, a baker, lived in School Street. He 

married Joanna (1674), daughter of Nicholas Parker, who 

survived him. His daughter Joanna (baptismal covenant, 

1680), was celebrated by Dunton as being "the very 

Flower of Boston " ; she married, first, Robert Breck, and 

then, Michael Perry. His son, Arthur, married Mary 

(1720?), daughter of Sampson Stoddard. Arthur Mason 

died, 4 March, 1708, aged 77 years.

Sergeant, who told me of M r Arthur Mason's Funeral, which 
I knew nothing of before ; neither did I suspect it ; thinking 
it would be defer'd till next week for sake of M r Norton and 
his wife." — Sewall.

322 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

Mary Mason, the eldest daughter, was the wife of the 
Rev. John Norton, of Hingham. 

William Clark. Judge Sewall mentions William 
Clark of the South Church, and William Clark of the 
North Church, to distinguish them from each other. 
Both were leading merchants. The former died before 
1726, and his widow, Hannah, married the Hon. Josiah 
Willard (1701). 1 The latter may be appropriately men- 
tioned in these pages, as his son Benjamin joined this 
church, in 1724, and many of his descendants — Masons, 
Phillipses and Walleys — became prominent in it. The 
Hon. William Clark, merchant, representative, councillor, — 

"Lived in the largest, most elaborately finished and fur- 
nished house in Boston. It was a brick structure, standing 
on Clark's Square, so called, next to the mansion afterward 
occupied by Governor Hutchinson. It was subsequently 
owned and occupied by Sir Henry Frankland, and is cele- 
brated in one of Cooper's novels." — Tuttle. 

He died in 1742. His daughter, Sarah, married Chris- 
topher Kilby, the distinguished man of that name ; and 
his son, Benjamin (1724), married Miriam, daughter of 
Christopher (1695) and Sarah Kilby. 

There was another William Clark, shipmaster and mer- 
chant, who died in 17 10, and therefore could not have 
been the William Clark of the South Church referred to 
by Sewall as late as 1720. His widow, Mary, became the 
third wife of Governor Gurdon Saltonstall, of Conn., and 
she must have been the Mary Saltonstall, by whose will 
proved 16 Jan. 1729, one hundred pounds were given to 
the Overseers of the Poor for the poor of Boston, and 
twenty pounds "to the poor of the now Old South 
Church," "to be disposed of at the discretion of the said 
Church." "Deborah, Philisia, Negro-servants of Madam 
Saltonstall," were baptized 24 July, 1726. The baptismal 

1 John, of William and Hannah Clark, was the first child baptized by the Rev. 
Thomas Prince (19 Oct. 1718).

James Woodmansey in her twentieth year. In 1706, she 
married William Tilly (1674), who died in 1717 ; and, 29 
Oct. 1 7 19, she married Judge Sewall as his second wife, 
but they lived together only seven months, for she died, 
very suddenly, 26 May, 1720. 

Tuesday, May 31, 1720 ; " Buried my dear Wife. Bearers,

Miriam Simpkins — Tyler, daughter of Pilgrim Simp- 
kins by his first wife Miriam, and wife of Thomas Tyler. 

Hannah Savage, daughter of Samuel Phillips (1707) 
by his wife Hannah (Gillam), and wife of Habijah Savage 
(1708). 

Feb. 11, 1704-5; "Mrs. Hanah Savage, Mr. Phillip's 
daughter, is taken into the Church, though next Sabbath be 
the usual season. It seems she desired it." — Sewall. 

On the next Sunday, Habijah, son of Habijah and 
Hannah Savage, was baptized. 



Samuel Bass, a tanner in Water Street, probably on 
part of the site now occupied by the Post Office. Had 
wife Christian (171 7) ; their daughter, Christian (1741), 
married John Armstrong (1789), who was the father of 
Samuel Turell Armstrong (18 15), deacon, lieut. governor, 
acting governor. 



324 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

705. 

Thomas Dawes, son of Ambrose (1670), and grandson 
of William (1669) ; born 1 Nov. 1680; by trade a mason 
and builder. He married Sarah Story (1703), and died 
suddenly, 17 March, 1750. Several of his children be- 
came members of the Third Church. His son, Story 
Dawes (baptismal covenant, 1736), to whom the home in 
Sudbury Street descended, became a member of the West 
Church, during the ministry of the Rev. William Hooper. 

Elisha Story, came from England about 1700, with 
his sister Sarah (1703), who married Thomas Dawes 
(1705). By wife Sarah had Elisha, baptized 9 March, 
1717-18. 

Ezekiel Lewis, son of Capt. William Lewis, of Farming- 
ton, Conn., by his second wife, Mary, daughter of Ezekiel 
Cheever, 1 of Boston. Born 7 Nov. 1764; Harv. Coll. 
1695 ; among his classmates were Simon Willard (1696), 
Abijah Savage (1708), and Oliver Noyes (1721). After 
graduation, he taught for a time in Westfield, and then in 
Boston as an assistant to his grandfather, Mr. Cheever. 
He became a successful merchant, and was selectman, 
overseer of the poor and representative. His first wife, 
Mary (Breadon) (1696), died, 20 Feb. 1703-4, and, says 
Judge Sewall, she had " a great funeral " ; he says further, 
12 Oct. 1704, "M r Ezk. Lewis marries the widow Kil- 
cup." This second wife was Abigail, daughter of Joseph 
Dudson, and widow of Roger Kilcup (died 1 Oct. 1702) ; 
she joined the church under the baptismal covenant, 7 
Feb. 1702-3, and had three children baptized at the same

with it in full communion 25 Feb. 1721. Mr. Lewis first 
joined the church in Westfield, and, in 1705, he trans-

was a member of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, in 1633.

ferred his membership to the South Church, of which he 
became an active member. Judge Sewall mentions him 
in 1722, with David Jeffries (171 1) and Daniel Oliver 
(1689), as one of the overseers of seats ; and he served on 
many important committees in connection both with the 
spiritual and secular affairs of the church, until the time 
of his death, 14 Aug. 1755. His son, Ezekiel, born 171 7, 
Harv. Coll. 1735 (baptismal covenant, 1741), was one of 
a committee appointed 9 Feb. 1761, to make arrange- 
ments for the entertainment of the reverend elders and 
messengers who were to assist at the installation of the 
Rev. Alexander Cumming (1761). This son had a son 
Ezekiel, by wife Jane, baptized 6 Sept. 1741. 

Allwin Butcher, son of Robert and Elizabeth Butcher 

(1675). 

Jan. 20, 1705-6; "M r Butchers son Alwin taken into

miss'd from Westfield, and enterM into Covenant with them." 
— Sewall. 

He had wife Elizabeth, and children Robert and 
Elizabeth. 



1706. 

Samuel Adams, second son of John and Hannah 
(1700), and father of Samuel, the patriot (1789) ; born in 
Boston 6 May, 1689 ; in 1713, he was married by the Rev. 
Mr. Pemberton to Mary Fifield (171 1). He was a brewer, 
and " was possessed of an ample fortune for those days, 
the fruits of his scrupulous attention to business." He 
also took an active interest in political affairs. He " and 
about twenty others, one or two from the north end of the 
town, where all ship business was carried on, used to 
meet, make a caucus, and lay their plans for introducing 
certain persons into places of trust and power. ' ' From this 



326 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

Caulkers' Club, the word caucus is supposed by many to 

have been derived. ' Samuel Adams was for many years a 

justice of the peace, selectman and representative; he 

was refused as a member of the council in 1747 by the 

royal governor, Shirley, because he had been too outspoken 

in his opposition to the encroachments of the crown upon 

the rights of the people. His son's biographer says that 

he was for some years a deacon in the Old South Church, 

but there is no evidence of this in the church records. He 

united with others, in 171 5, in founding what came to be 

known as the New South Church in Summer Street, over 

which a family connection, the Rev. Samuel Checkley, 

was settled as minister. He died, March, 1748, and it 

was then said : 

" Last week died and was decently interred the remains of 
Samuel Adams, Esq. ; a gentleman who sustained many 
public offices among us, and for some time past represented 
this town in the General Assembly. He was one who well 
understood and rightly pursued the civil and religious interests 
of this people ; a true New England Man ; an honest Patriot. 
Help, Lord, for such wise and godly men cease, and such 
faithful members fail from among the sons of New England." 
Independent Advertiser. Wm. V. Wells. 

His great son said of him, " he was a wise man and a 
good man." 

Hannah Stoddard, daughter of Simeon Stoddard 
(1691) by his first wife Mary (1686). 

Jonathan Belcher, son of the Hon. Andrew Belcher 
(1697), by his first wife Sarah (Gilbert) ; born, 1682 ; 
Harv. Coll. 1699 ; travelled abroad for many years ; be- 
came a merchant in Boston, and was soon conspicuous in 
political life. He was a member of the council 1722-23, 

1 The derivation of this word would seem to have been giving trouble for an 
hundred years at least. In the Independent Chronicle, Boston, 6 Dec. 1786, a writer 
suggests that the word caucus may be an abbreviation of Caucasus, upon which 
the gods were accustomed to hold their assemblies.

1726-27, and in 1728 was sent as agent to England. He 
was Governor of Massachusetts for eleven years, and, in 
1747, was made Governor of New Jersey, which office he 
filled until his death, 31 Aug. 1757. His first wife was 
Mary (1706), daughter of William Partridge, of New 
Hampshire. His daughter, Sarah, married Byfield Lyde, 
and their daughter, Mary Belcher Lyde, joined the Old 
South, 1 768. Rear Admiral Sir Edward Belcher was a 
great-grandson of Jonathan Belcher. 

Mary Belcher, daughter of William Partridge, Lieut. 
Gov. of New Hampshire, and wife of Jonathan Belcher.

cold wether." — Sewall. 

Martha Belcher — Stoddard, daughter of the Hon. 
Andrew Belcher (1697), and wife of Anthony Stoddard 
(p. 296), son of Simeon (1691). She joined the South 
Church when twenty years of age, and was an exemplary 
member for more than forty years. She died, 1 1 Feb. 1 748, 
and her funeral sermon was preached by the Rev. Thomas 
Prince, the subject being, "The Fulness of Life and Joy 
in the Presence of God." Her son, Simeon, was baptized 
23 Nov. 1707, and graduated at Harv. Coll. 1726. 

Mary Holberton — Allen, probably a daughter of 
Capt. Holberton, who sailed between Boston and London, 
and who, Sewall says, died at sea. He seems to have be- 
longed to the Old South congregation. 

Andrew Walker. 

We find the death of an Andrew Walker recorded 19 
Oct. 1 717, and of Mrs. Walker, "wife of Andrew," 8 
July, 1 717.

.707. 

Hannah Sylvester. Giles Sylvester married Hannah, 
daughter of the first Thomas Savage, widow of Benjamin 
Gillam, Sept. 1685, but, says Savage, "I have no further 
account of him. Perhaps he dwelt on Shelter Island, the 
manorial estate of his father," — at the east end of Long 
Island. 

Thomas Salter, 
Mary Salter. 

Thomas Salter was one of the founders of the New 
South Church, 171 5-1 8. There was another of the name, 
of whom Sewall wrote :

Ezekiel Walker, 
Ruth Walker. 

Their son, Ezekiel, was baptized 1 7 May, 1 702, and he, 
by wife Sarah, had three sons baptized by the same name, 
respectively, 2 July, 1727; 24 Aug. 1729; and 24 Sept, 

1738. 

Daniel Henchman (17 — ) and Thomas Hubbard (1730), 
executors, advertised, Nov. 1743, "the mansion house and 
land of Mrs. Ruth Walker, at the upper end of Hanover 
St. and opposite to the Orange Tree." 

In the town records, we find the death of a "Mrs. 
Ezekiel Walker," entered under date of 13 Sept. 1712; 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 329 

this could not have been Ruth, wife of Ezekiel Walker, 
as they had children baptized at the South Church long 
after this time. 



Rebecca Smith — Baker, took dismission to the church 
in Sherborne. 

Rebecca Smith, "since Clark," "grandchild to M r Eliot

wife, Elizabeth, and his son, James, were admitted to 
membership under the baptismal covenant, and his chil- 
dren, James, Jane, Rebecca and William, all but the last 
the children of his first wife, were baptized. His will 
bears date, 7 Nov. 16S6.

Elizabeth Royal. Savage says of John Royal : 

"John, York, son of William, married Elizabeth Dodd ; 
was there in 16S0, to take oath of allegiance to the King, but 
in 1688 was taken prisoner by the Indians ; yet was living in 
Boston, 1695."

— Bumstcad. 

The Rev. Benj. Colman preached a sermon after his 
funeral, entitled "A Blameless and Inoffensive Life," a 
copy of which is in the Prince Library. 

There was another of the same name, for Dr. Lowell 
says, that of the original members of the West Church, 
two, — Hugh Hall and David Stoddard, — came from the 
South Church, but the name of neither of these appears 
on our list of members. The West Church was gathered 
in 1736.

" The covenant was subscribed by seventeen persons, ' after 
solemn prayer and preaching, in presence of Thomas Prince, 
pastor of the South Church, and Thomas Foxcroft, pastor of 
the Old, or first Church.' It is written in the spirit of Robin- 
son and the fathers." — Lowell. 

Jonathan Simpson ; his name appears on a petition, 
with the names of Samuel Adams, Thomas Peck and 
others, in 1715, for leave to erect a meeting house in 
Summer Street, but if he had thought of assisting in this 
new religious enterprise, he afterward changed his mind. 
He was chosen deacon in the Old South Church, 7 Aug. 

1733-

The Rev. John Webb, Harv. Coll. 1708, was ordained 

first minister of the New North Church, Boston, 20 Oct. 

1 7 14. 

" His labors as a minister were abundantly successful. He 
was a leading efficient promoter of the Great Revival of 
1740-43. No church in Boston shared more largely than his 
in the blessings of that glorious manifestation of Divine power 
and grace. We have his own statement, made to the Rev. 
Thomas Prince, pastor of the Old South Church and Compiler 
of the Christian History, that in a period of three months, in 
1 741, he was visited by more than one thousand different in- 
dividuals in deep concern for their own salvation." — Vinton.

says of her : 

"The mother of Samuel Adams was a woman of severe 
religious principles, and she early embued her children with 
reverence for the Christian virtues which she practised. To 
the scrupulous attention of his parents to devotional objects 
must have been greatly due the religious turn of mind which 
was a prevailing trait throughout the life of the son." — Wells. 

In 1789, Samuel Adams, then Lieut. Governor of the 
Commonwealth, came back to the church where his 
grandparents and parents had worshipped, and by whose 
ministers his mother had been baptized and married.

mate, Beard, who swam ashore. The Rev. Thomas 
Prince (17 18) had written from England, that he proposed 
taking passage with "a dear and pious Friend, Mr. David 
Jeffries, but was prevented by Sickness and other Inci- 
dents." Mr. Jeffries left an only son, David (1740), who 
became a deacon in the Old South. His widow married 
Oliver Noyes (1693). Mr. Jeffries was a college classmate 
of the Rev. John Webb; Joseph Sewall (1713) and

first Joseph." [ " Behold I will take the stick of Joseph etc."] 
— Sewall. 

He graduated at Harv. Coll. in 1707, the Rev. Thomas 
Prince, his life long friend and colleague, being in the same 
class. He was installed as a colleague with Mr. Pem- 
berton in 171 3, and surviving three colleagues, lived until 
1769. He was not a great man ; "but, in humble, ardent 
and consistent piety, and devotedness to the work of the 
ministry, has seldom been equalled. A disposition natu- 
rally mild and affectionate began to be sanctified in child- 
hood ; and evidences are preserved of his diligent and 
faithful use of the means of promoting growth in grace 
from early youth." " He delighted in the work of the 
ministry ; and when he grew venerable for his age as 
well as his piety, he was regarded as the father of the 
clergy. The rising generation looked upon him with 
reverence ; and all classes of people felt a respect for his 
name." His sermons, of which many were published and 



340 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

are preserved, were always instructive and practical. 
Although of a deliberate and cautious disposition, he 
"was courageous in withstanding error. He could sacri- 
fice everything for peace, but duty and truth and holi- 
ness." — Wisner. 

In 1724, he was called to the presidency of Harvard 
College, to succeed Mr. Leverett, but in compliance with 
the urgent desire of his people, he declined the invitation. 
When Jonathan Belcher (1706) returned from England, 
in 1730, as Governor of the Province, he brought for him 
a diploma from the University of Glasgow, constituting 
him a Doctor of Divinity. He was for many years one 
of the commissioners of the Society in London for Propa- 
gating the Gospel in New England, and a corresponding 
member of the Society in Scotland for the Promotion of 
Christian Knowledge. 

His funeral sermon was preached by his nephew, the 
Rev. Charles Chauncy (1724), who said: 

" On the evening of the 26 th of last August, the day on which 
he compleated fourscore years, he spake to you from this desk, 
with affectionate gratitude to God upon such an extraordinary 
occasion, and so as to endeavour your spiritual edification. 
He was not permitted, after this, to preach to you more than 
three or four times. * * * It would be a great omission, 
if I did not make mention of him as one of those ' good men, 
for whom one would even dare to die.' He was in his temper, 
pitiful, tender hearted, courteous, kindly afFectioned ; and from 
principle as a Christian, he ' forgot not to do good and com- 
municate,' as he had opportunity, and according to his ability. 
It was his practice to lay by one full tenth of his income for 
the uses of piety and charity. And sometimes, as occasions 
in providence called for it, he went even beyond this.'' 

Dr. Sewall lived to see his son, Samuel (1749), whom 
he had baptized, a deacon of the Old South. His wife, 
Elizabeth (171 1), daughter of the Hon. John Walley 
(1679), died many years before him.

Nathaniel Emmons, was one of the early portrait painters, 
and his portrait of Judge Sewall is in the possession of 
Samuel Sewall, of Burlington, Mass.

to evade the right of the King's printer." — Savage. He 
erected the first paper mill in Massachusetts, in 1730. It 
was on the Neponset River, in Milton, and turned out writ- 
ing, printing and wrapping paper, from linen rags collected 
mostly in Boston. — Nason. His daughter, Lydia, married

Abiel Walley, 
Margaret Walley. 

Abiel, son of John and Elizabeth (1709) Walley, was 
baptized 5 Sept. 1686; his father received adult baptism 
on the same day. His mother was probably a daughter 
of the second John Alden (1669) by his second wife Eliz- 
abeth (1674), daughter of William Phillips and widow of 
Abiel Everill. He was a prominent merchant; in 1721, 
he was appointed comptroller of His Majesty's Customs 
for Boston ; and in 1750, he was chairman of a committee

appointed by the town, consisting of Samuel Welles, 
Charles Apthorp, Thomas Hancock and others, to 
memorialize the General Court against the tax then in 
force, on tea, coffee, carriages and other articles. He 
took dismission to the New North Church. In 1730, he 
was a member of a committee of that church, with Samuel 
Barrett, Joshua Cheever, Josiah Langdon and others, for 
enlarging its meeting house. His will, dated 1 Sept. 
1739, was proved 31 Aug. 1759. 

Susanna Thayer. 

During the prevalence of small pox in Boston in 1721, 
Sewall speaks of her being brought from Brookline with 
the disease upon her, Nov. 18. He visited her at a 
house in Sudbury Street, where she was lodged, and on 
the 27th expresses a hope that she may recover. 

Nov. 30; "About 7. m. Susan falls asleep." "Dec. 1,

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 345 

The Rev. Thomas Prince, fourth son of Samuel 
Prince of Sandwich, and grandson of John Prince of Hull 
who came to New England in 1633. John was a son of 
the Rev. John Prince, of East Shefford, Berks, England, 
who "was born of honorable parents, educated in the 
University of Oxford, was one of the Puritan ministers 
of the Church of England who in part conformed, and 
found great friends to protect him in omitting the more 
offensive ceremonies as long as he lived." 

The second wife of Samuel Prince was Mercy, daughter 
of Governor Hinckley. Their son, Thomas, was born at 
Sandwich, 15 May, 1687; Harv. Coll. 1707. After com- 
pleting his studies he went abroad, remaining several 
years ; he preached for some time at Coombs in Suffolk, 
and was urged to settle there, but he was unwilling to 
expatriate himself permanently from New England. He 
returned in the summer of 171 7, and was at once invited 
to several important pastorates ; he at length accepted a 
call to the South Church, as colleague of his classmate 
aud friend, Mr. Sewall, and was installed 1 Oct. 171 8. 
He married, 30 Oct. 17 19, Deborah Denny (1727), who 
had been a member of his congregation at Coombs, and who 
survived him, and died, 1 June, 1766. Their son, Thomas, 
Harv. Coll. 1740, a young man of much promise, died at 
the age of 26 ; and their daughter, Deborah (1739), one °f 
whose letters to an English relative, describing the re- 
vival under the preaching of Whitfield, is extant, died 20 
July, 1744, in the 21st year of her age. Only one of the 
children survived their father, or was married, — Sarah 
(1745), who became the wife of Moses Gill, merchant, 
afterward lieut. governor and acting governor. 

" The talents of Mr. Prince were above mediocrity ; and in 
diligent and successful study, few if any in America have 
been his equals. He made great proficiency, not only in 
divinity, but also in most of the branches ol natural science 
and polite literature cultivated at that period. In history and 

45 



346 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

chronology, especially as relating to this country, his labors 
were prosecuted with unparalleled industry and fidelity, and 
have imposed on posterity great and lasting obligation. In 
1703, while at college, he began a collection of books and 
public and private papers, relating to the civil and religious 
history of New England, to which he continued to make 
valuable additions for more than fifty years. He also made 
a large collection of classical and theological works and books 
of general literature. All these he gave, at his decease, to the 
church and congregation of which he had been minister. * * * 

" But it is not merely for his literary acquisitions and labors 
that Mr. Prince is to be remembered by us with respect and 
gratitude. 'That,' said his colleague, in his funeral sermon, 
'which set a crown upon all, was, that he feared God from 
his youth, and early appeared a lover of pure religion.' We 
have as convincing evidence of his decided, consistent and de- 
voted piety, as of his extensive learning. He was, indeed, 
a rare instance of diligence and fidelity in the duties of per- 
sonal religion and in the work of the ministry, united with 
great ardor and proficiency in secular studies. His sermons 
were rich in evangelical truth ; always prepared with care, 
abounding in facts and pertinent illustration. ' His dis- 
courses,' it is said, ' were sometimes too learned for common 
people'; but if we may judge from those which were pub- 
lished, he was less faulty in this respect than, from the char- 
acter of his mind andstudies, might have been expected. * * * 

" Forty years were these excellent men, Sewall and Prince, 
associated in the responsibilities and labors of the pastoral 
office in this congregation ; furnishing an example of mutual 
affection and union of purpose and pursuit, to which the annals 
of collegiate charges will be searched for a parallel, I fear, 
almost in vain. The journals and other documents that have 
come down to us, lay open before us the most secret history 
of these men ; and not a solitary instance appears of un- 
pleasant difference of opinion, or of the slightest interruption, 
in any form, of confidence and affection." — Wisner. 

Mr. Prince's health began to decline in the autumn of 
1757. "When means to restore it failed, he expressed 
his submission to the will of God, saying, It is just as it 
should be." He died, 22 Oct. 1758, aged 72. On the 
next Sabbath, his funeral sermon was preached by Dr. 
Sewall ', and at the same service, his Revisal of the New 
England Version of the Psalms, which he had undertaken

at the request of the congregation, and which had been 
accepted a short time before his death, was used at public 
worship for the first time. 

The Prince Library is now deposited for safe keeping 
in the Public Library, under a mutually satisfactory ar- 
rangement between the City of Boston and the Old South 
Church. 

Abijah Adams, son of John and Hannah Adams (1700) ; 
baptized, 17 May, 1702. He married, in 1725, Deborah 
Cutler (1726), and he may have had a second wife 
Hannah, as the baptisms are recorded of " Habijah, 
of Habijah and Deborah Adams," 9 April, 1727, and of 
"Hannah, of Abijah and Hannah Adams," 6 July, 1729. 
He was for many years clerk of Faneuil Hall market, and 
died in 1 768. 

Hannah Deming, wife of Samuel, who was probably 
son of David and Mary Deming. John, " of Samuel and 
Hannah Deming," was baptized 3 Sept. 1721, and joined 
the church 1741. Samuel died, 22 April, 1722, aged 38, 
and Hannah, 4 Sept. 1 742, aged 66. We find on the bap- 
tismal record, as early as 1705, Samuel and Hannah 
Deming, and in 1747, John and Mary Deming, and Samuel 
and Mary Deming. 

Elizabeth Green — Kneeland, wife of John Knee- 
land. 

Thomas Adams, son of John Adams (1700) by his 
second wife Hannah (1700), daughter of Anthony Check- 
ley; born 29 March, 1701 ; baptized next day.

and Jehosheba (1670) Wing. 



348 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

1719. 

Benjamin Simpson, had wife Elizabeth. 

Bartholomew Green. We do not understand the ap- 
pearance of this name under the date of 21 June, 1 719, as 
Bartholomew Green, the father, was chosen deacon of the 
church two months before this, and must have been a 
member for many years, and his son of the same name 
is recorded as having been baptized 1 Sept. 1700, and as 
owning the covenant 2 Jan. 1725. 

Bartholomew Green, fourth son of Captain Samuel 
Green, — " the famous printer of Cambridge, who arrived 
with Governor Winthrop in 1630," — was born at Cam- 
bridge, 12 Oct. 1666. Early in 1690 he set up a printing 
office in Boston, but his presses and type were hardly in 
place before the great fire of that year consumed them. 
In two years he established himself again. " His printing- 
house was in Newbury St., now Washington, near the 
corner of Avon St., a site which he and his successors 
continued to occupy until the Revolution." He was 
"the principal printer of this town and country near 
forty years." 

He was chosen a deacon of the South Church 17 April, 
1 719. We are indebted to Judge Sewall's Diary for the 
date. He died, 28 Dec. 1732 ; and the following estimate 
of his character is from the News Letter (4 Jan. 1733), the 
paper which he had printed for nearly thirty years, and 
of which he had been the proprietor since 1 J 22. 

" He was a person generally known and esteemed among 
us, as a very humble and exemplary Christian, one who had 
much of that primitive Christianity in him, which has always 
been the distinguishing glory of New England. We may 
further remark his eminency for a strict observance of the 
Sabbath ; his household piety ; his keeping close and diligent 
to the work of his calling; his meek and peaceable spirit; 
his caution of publishing anything offensive, light or hurtful ; 
and his tender sympathy to the poor and afflicted. He began 



BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES. 349 

to be pious in the days of his youth ; and he would always 
speak of the wonderful spirit of piety that then prevailed in 
the land with a singular pleasure." 

His first wife is said to have been Maria (Mather) ; but 
in the baptismal register, she is called Mary, and her death 
is recorded under the same name, 26 March, 1709. 
During the following year, Mr. Green married Jane Tap- 
pan (1697), a niece of Judge Sewall, who survived him. 

Bartholomew Green, the son, was " a printer in Boston, 
1727, removed to Halifax, N. S., 175 1, to establish a 
printing house, where he died about a month afterward, 
aged 52." — Paige. He had wife Hannah, and they had 
five children baptized at the Old South between 1 725 and 

1734- 

George Bethune, 
Mary Bethune. 

George Bethune "was of a younger branch of the 
Bethunes of Balfour, and his descendants now represent 
the male line of that distinguished Scotch family." — Eds. 
Sewall. His name does not appear in the original list of 
members, but the records show that he served on com- 
mittees of the church and congregation. His wife, Mary, 
was a daughter of Benjamin and a niece of Peter Faneuil. 
They had several daughters who became members of the 
Old South. 



John Walley, son of the Hon. John Walley (1679), 
and grandson of the Rev. Thomas Walley of Barnstable ; 
born in Bristol, R. I., 11 Sept. 1691 ; baptized at the 
South Church, 9 Oct. 1692 ; was a merchant ; married 
Bethia (1713), daughter of John Eyre (1683); occupied 
his father's mansion in Water St., which was sold out of 
the family several years after his death. In 171 8, he and 
Jacob Wendell were bondsmen for Madam Mico (1689) 



350 THE OLD SOUTH CHURCH. 

as administratrix of her husband's estate. He died, 6 
March, 1745. Three of his children became members of 
the South Church before his death: Katharine (1740); 
the Rev. John, Harv. Coll. 1734 (1742); Bethia (1744). 
His son, Thomas, attended the West Church and was a 
member of the standing committee there, under the 
ministry of the Rev. Dr. Howard ; Samuel Hall Walley, 
son of Thomas, married Miriam (1796), daughter of the 
second William Phillips (1772), and joined the Old South 
in 1 818 ; and their son, Samuel Hurd Walley, Harv. Coll. 
1826, joined in i860. 

John Ellery, son of William, who emigrated from the 
West of England. Born, 25 June, 1681 ; a sea-captain, 
and later a merchant. Died, 20 July, 1742, "well re- 
puted among us." Had wife Jane (1712) ; their son, 
John (1733), married Elizabeth, daughter of Joseph Ruck, 
and secondly, Mary Austin. 



Judith Durant, wife of Edward Durant ; had daugh- 
ter Judith, baptized 26 May, 1723. 

Naomi Dupee, wife of John Dupee.
